This is one of the finest Illinois fluorite specimens that we have ever had for sale! It is absolutely exquisite! There are two fluorite corners growing from a shared stalk that has been partially dissolutioned away. The fluorite has extremely sharp and clear phantoms with a yellow core followed by a thin purple zone and then the blue outer zone. There are two white, round barite balls embedded in the yellow zone just poking through the purple zone. The outer zones are so glassy that light goes right through to the barite balls giving them a very 3D appearance of floating inside of the fluorite crystal. 

The condition is also quite superb with very sharp and straight edges and corners. The specimen is of such high quality that you don't even need to put it in a display case under a direct spotlight to get the full effect. Just regular lighting on any shelf lights this specimen up revealing it's incredible beauty! 

The specimen comes with a custom Sunnywood acrylic display base.
