This is quite a large specimen of Fluorite from this classic location. The Fluorite crystals have a cubic habit and are a light green color with a slight blue tint. The larger crystals have white inclusions of Quartz, some of which are iron stained. There are a few small Quartz crystals present which are mostly white in color with light iron staining in a few. Under LW UV, the Fluorite fluoresces vividly a blue/violet color. The specimen was obtained by McBroom in 1982 in a trade with Sam Weller, legendary Cornish mineral dealer.

Condition: Very Good

Flaws: There is some minor, small chipping on a few of the edges of the crystals.
