Fluorite - classic British yellow
stock #19.1-405
Hilton Mine, Scordale, Hilton Escarpment District, Murton, Eden
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
5.7 x 4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
new year 2021

A nice cluster of gemmy and sharp Fluorite cubes from the famed Hilton Mine, collected in 1974 by Les Hitchings. The crystals are quite clear, transparent and undamaged. The largest cubes are over 1.2 CM across and have a vivid fluorescence as is typical of much Fluorite from this region. The Hilton Mine was of great importance to mineral collectors as it was the source for lemon-yellow Fluorites which were quite distinct and different from most other British locales. A very nice yet more affordable specimen of this classic material.

Hilton Mine, Scordale, Hilton Escarpment District, Murton, Eden
Cumbria, England

price: $520
new year 2021

A plate of bright honey-yellow Fluorites from the famed Hilton Mine. The crystals reach over 2 CM in diameter though most are smaller, and all have good sharp edges. As is typical for English Fluorites from this region this is vividly fluorescent. The Fluorites are translucent to transparent on the edges though a few have a milky core area. The luster is slightly satin on some faces but others faces are more glassy. Overall in very good condition, a nice classic English specimen

May 2015

A classic English Hinton Fluorite that shows the nice yellow color, glass clear crystals and has a nice contrast with the matrix of smaller Fluorites. In very good condition as seen and a piece that can be shown from several angles. These have gotten much harder to find in decent quality.
