Wow! This killer Illinois fluorite specimen has two phantom fluorite crystals aesthetically perched atop a base of wheat-sheaf Calcite. The largest fluorite crystal measures 6.4cm wide. They both have sharp phantoms with an yellow/orange core and blue/purple outer layers. Between the layers are large specks of chalcopyrite. The calcite looks amazing too! There are hundreds of crystals there, and they all appear to be perfect with no damage except for around the edges where the specimen was trimmed. The fluorite crystals have sharp edges and only tiny imperfections on the tips. Since the backside has the inner yellow core exposed it lights up fantastically when light is shined on it from behind or above, so it really stands out in our mineral display cabinet here. 

The piece was recently professionally trimmed and vacuum sealed by Nimeral Min-Lab out of Italy.  It comes with a custom acrylic display base.
