Fluorite - zoned crystals on Quartz
Redstone Quarry, Conway, Carroll County
8.1 x 7.4 x 4.4 CM (cabinet)
pre Tucson 2015 update
A classic old find from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, these rare "pocket" Fluorites are by far the most esthetic of these we have seen. 1960's vintage, this specimen is well-formed and has exceptional 3 dimensional presentation. The Fluorites reach 3.5 CM across and have fine and classic zoning with frosted faces that makes this locality distinctive. Aside from the famed Wise Mine in southwestern New Hampshire this defunct quarry is the next best New England Fluorite locale and this is perhaps the best example.
