SOLD Fluorite - USA classic locale
Minerva Mine #1, Rosiclare Level, Cave in Rock
Illinois, United States
4.1 x 3.8 x 3.1 CM (miniature)
price: $0
new year 2021

A crisp blue Fluorite from the Minerva Mine, Cave in Rock, Illinois. This specimen hosts a small cube that is perfectly transparent and has a tiny wisp of purple color seen only on one face. The larger cube has a milky yellow core and a pale blue edge. The specimen is not perfect with some contacts and bruising but this still looks fine from some angles. The color of the sharp transparent cube is quite choice for the locale. Gemmy blue Fluorite is one of the more desired and sought after Southern Illinois Fluorites. Ex L Sweetman collection, this is a 1950-mid 60's era specimen and it does look different from the finds of the eighties and 90's.
