Calcite with Fluorite
Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub District, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
6.8 x 4.9 x 3.8 (cabinet)
price: $330
new year 2021

A southern Illinois classic, a mass of transparent, gemmy Calcite crystals are the sparkling background to some small purple to blue Fluorites. The bright luster of these Calcites are hard to appreciate in photos but in person the visual impact is strong. This choice Denton Mine specimen is from the collection of Les Hitchings which he obtained in 1992, from the last period of mining there which produced some exceptional Calcites.
