SOLD Fluorite - with Dolomite, gem clear
stock #SOLD WAM-AX-17
Walworth Quarry, Walworth, Wayne County
New York, United States
2.1 x 1.7 x 1.6 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A perfect, sharp and transparent elongated cube of pale blue to colorless Fluorite. This is heavily encrusted with Dolomite and micro Fluorites, so much of the Fluorite is hidden. A classic New York USA locality this is a cute thumbnail that looks better in person and shows the Walworth matrix "wrapping" very well.

Fluorite on Celestite
stock #21.1-509
White Rock Quarry, Clay Center, Ottawa County
Ohio, United States
3 x 2.4 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $600


Killer thumbnail (or toenail) of of a single sharp zoned Fluorite esthetically perched on a Celestite crystal. Classic association from the Clay center area (Ohio, USA), this one from the famed White Rock Quarry. Very sharp edged and with no damage, what may look like damage in the photos is mostly internal inclusions. The Fluorite crystal is a flattened cube and also fluorescent. The zoning is subtle in person, best seen when viewed straight on, but it is well-developed and the faces are very glassy in person.

HOLD Fluorite, zoned cubes
stock #HOLD 21.1-471
Okorusu Mine, Otjiwarango District
Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia
5.6 x 3.6 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $490


A choice older specimen of phantom Fluorite from the famed Okorusu Mine (Namibia). The main crystals are especially fine, sharp edged, and transparent. Color zoning is also very distinct with the overall hue a mid range blue with phantoms being a more deep blue to purple color. We have seen huge amounts of Fluorite from this mine over the years but very few were in such good condition with prominent zoning. The mine has been inactive for several years now, these are becoming modern classics.

Fluorite (purple cloud) with Calcite
stock #21.1-167
Yindu Mine, Hexigten Banner, Chifeng City
Inner Mongolia Region, China
3.9 x 2.4 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $1350


An incredible Yindu Fluorite with a glass-clear blue crystal that has a deep purple cloud inside and a fine edge phantom as well. Super sharp and resting on Calcite the Fluorite has impeccable bright luster. The overall effect is like looking into an aquarium. Good Yindu Fluorites are now very much admired and sought after, as they are both beautiful and unlike most any other Fluorite. One edge of this elongated cube is contacted where it was on matrix but there is no damage, breaks or chips. This rests on a crystalized mass of white Calcite and the contrast is excellent. Better in person too.

SOLD Fluorite - gemmy zoned on Calcite
stock #SOLD 21.1-166
Yindu Mine, Hexigten Banner, Chifeng City
Inner Mongolia Region, China
3.8 x 2.3 x 1.8 CM (thumbnail)
price: $0


A killer thumbnail from the unbelievable finds at the Yindu Mine (China). We have been very impressed with the this locality since it began producing fine specimens, however there has been almost nothing in thumbnail size of any quality. This is the first really good piece we have seen in this size. Well-composed and balanced with a perfect gem clear zoned cube prominently perched on matrix. Excellent luster and better in person, the vivid purple core is set in a clear blue box. Yindu has made some great impressions for a few of the better specimens found over the past two years. The great ones are just a tiny percentage but they are amazing and already command some very high prices. This is a fine piece of competition grade in a small size that is not insanely expensive.

Fluorite with Siderite - vintage German specimen
stock #21.1-200
Rottleberode, Sudharz, Mansfeld-Sudharz
Saxony- Anhalt, Germany
6.2 x 5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Late Summer 2021

Blue-green Fluorite crystals reaching 3.3 CM with several distinct Siderite crystals on and between the Fluorites. A nice old German piece with labels from A. Kranz and another earlier collection, this is in very good condition overall. This locality was worked for a very long time and finally closed about thirty years ago, though we believe this specimen is at least 100 years old. The Siderites are in well-formed lath type crystals and show curved faces much like Dolomites. A classic piece from the southern Harz Mountains, we rarely see specimens from this locale here in the USA, this one is well better than average.

Fluorite - USA classic, vintage 1950
stock #21.1-326
Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
4.4 x 3.3 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $280
Late Summer 2021

A nearly pure bright yellow color Fluorite with a tiny faint zone of light blue on some edges. This is an old piece with a tattered label dated 1950. The color and translucency is excellent, there are some edges that are slightly rough, the back and one side are the point of removal. The display side of the two main cubes is in nice condition. There is one round "Barite hole" on a face that adds a nice accent. Close exam of the wider faces shows many geometric growth structures and a little stepping, the luster is wet looking.

SOLD Fluorite on Calcite - unusual locale
stock #SOLD 21.1-353
Saint-Honore, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean
Quebec, Canada
7.9 x 6.6 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Late Summer 2021

Two different forms of Fluorite on Calcite matrix sprinkled with Chalcopyrite crystals. The Fluorite cubes are very sharp, gemmy zoned and vividly fluorescent. The pink portions of the Calcite are also fluorescent making a nice contrast of purple, red and cream colors. The Fluorite cubes are up to 8mm in size and in perfect condition. The cores are a yellow hue with a blue outer zone. We almost never see this locality represented in Fluorite collections but it is clear it was capable of forming some very nice crystals.
