Thulite

ex George Fetcher Collection
Fluorescent

Description Tabs

Description
Locality: 
Spruce Pine, Mitchell County, North Carolina, United States of America
Class: 
Massive/Crystalline
Size Range: 
Small cabinet (7-10 cm)
Size: 
7.8 × 5.5 × 2.5 cm
Description

A deep pink crystalline specimen with some patches of greyish white slightly fibrous material.

There is weak fluorescence.

Location unsure since the label states: The Golden Condor mine, kamso, North Carolina. The Golden Condor mine and company is actually located in Idaho, while Kamso appears to be a boy's or girl's name! The label would therefore appear to be a little confusing.  Thulite does occur in the Spruce Pine District.
