Description Tabs

Description
Locality: 
Frazers Hush Mine, Weardale, County Durham, United Kingdom

Crystal Group/Cluster
Size Range: 
Small miniature (3-4.5 cm)
Size: 
3.7 × 2.9 × 2.7 cm
Description

The crystals are up to 22mm on edges. Termination is very sharp, faces show mirror-luster. Photography was done under daylight, and it is still understatement! This material shows an incredible day-light fluorescence, like other fluorites show only under an UV-lamp. It is not just violet, it is purple and even more intense than you can imagine based on my photos.
