From: Crystal Victory Mine, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Size: 15.5 x 13.5 x 11.5cm
This is a *spectacular* Illinois fluorite! Easily one of the best we've ever had! For starters, it is a large specimen at half a foot wide, but the incredible aesthetics of the plum-violet colored crystals are just amazing! The large crystals have deep stepping on the faces and are intergrown in a really dramatic way. Hints of an orange fluorite core can be seen in areas, especially behind the stepped faces. There is some matrix on the backside which allows the specimen to stand up on its own without any supports.
The condition is very good for a specimen this size, and there is no major damage. Just the usual minor edge wear in places, but no major corners missing or even internal fractures. It is a really remarkable piece!
The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
