Fluorite with Barite and Chalcopyrite, Rosiclare Level North-End Denton Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Harris Creek District, Southern Illinois, Mined ca. 1985, Holzner Collection #C-004, Small Cabinet 5.5 x 6.5 x 9.0 cm, $650. Online 4/30.
Choice small cabinet fluorite with good luster and transparency, rich lilac color and markedly well developed secondary overgrowth. The combination with deep orange/yellow puts this specimen into the North-End of the Denton Mine and also focuses the timeframe circa 1985. Really an excellent specimen from the 'Lillie Pod' and difficult to find in this condition and aesthetics....even when the mine was running. Ken and Marilee Holzner Collection #C-004. Entered into Ross C. Lillie database as RCL2659.
