Pre Holiday 2017

A Northeastern US mineral legend, the black stemmed scepters of Herkimer are quite rare and despite hundreds of diggers toiling in the hard Dolomite only a few are found every few years. From a recent exceptional pocket this is a perfect example with no damage (extra rare) and doubly terminated (crudely) which is almost unheard of. The black stem is partly deep smoky brown with a few tiny areas of transparency. The top is sharp and glassy and also has dark inclusions some of which are brightly fluorescent. A fine small example of this most uncommon of Herkimer Diamond Quartz!

A cute small miniature featuring glass clear cubes that are almost colorless but have a tiny hint of blue in some light. The main Fluorite is 1.3 CM across and there is no damage on the specimen. The matrix can be seen perfectly through the crystals. Walworth Fluorites are quite rare on the market and much respected by regional collectors and Fluorite lovers worldwide. From an older collection this is a very good value.
