Fluorite - USA classic locale
stock #21.1-095
May Stone and Sand Quarry - Fort Wayne, Allen County
Indiana, United States
5.8 x 4.9 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $280
Early summer 2021

Gemmy, sharp, pale yellow Fluorites on a blocky Dolomite matrix. The largest crystal is 1.4 CM and has a very glassy luster. This area of Indiana is very different in terms of mineralogy from the famed Southern Illinois Fluorite districts. Water-clear crystals with very flat faces and sharp edges are more typical at this locale and good specimens are far more rare. A nice older piece that is much more lustrous in person.

A choice toenail of very clear sharp and undamaged Fluorite crystals on matrix. These also have a small phantom - a sharp interior cube but only seen with longwave UV light. An older specimen ex Hitchings collection collected over 40 years ago. A fine modern USA classic.

May Stone and Sand Quarry - Fort Wayne, Allen County
Indiana, United States
3.7 x 2.8 x 2.1 CM (miniature)
price: $120
Post Tucson 2015

A cute, glass-clear Fluorite in a razor sharp cube nicely perched on its matrix. Almost colorless there is a light yellow hue in the crystal. From a find in the 1960 era, this could be trimmed to an excellent thumbnail if desired but I like it as is. No damage at all, a small contact on the back edge is not seen on display.
