Fluorite - etched 360 degree cluster
Leadhill Mine area, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
4.6 x 3.1 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $190
Pre Tucson

From the recent find at Lead Hill, this is a highly etched cluster of stacked cubes that is crystalized on all sides with no point of attachment. The color ranges from a deep purple to almost colorless. On close exam there are some phantoms as well. The surface is highly etched but still geometric in structure. Some faces have a distinctive melted look. No obvious damage or chipping, this is a complete floater. It is great to see a few nice Fluorites are still being found in Southern Illinois.
