SOLD Fluorite, Rosiclare Level Minerva #1 Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Cave-in-Rock District, Southern Illinois, Mined April 1995, Ex. R. C. Lillie Collection to: Ralph Campbell Collection, Small Cabinet 4.5 x 5.0 x 6.0 cm, $2200. Online 10/5.
SOLD Group of zoned blue and light purple fluorite, crystals to 4.3 cm, on sphalerite. The specimen was found loose in the pocket with no attachment point on matrix. Specimen was in my original collection prior to routine of fixing numbered labels on pieces. My hand-typed tag states "Pillar robbing April, 1995 from Joe's drift. Excellent color and zoning. Note etched area on reverse from dissolution of barite." Since the locality is absolute and the quality and color so high I entered the specimen as RCL2745 in my database. I sold the specimen to Ralph Campbell circa 1996 at the Cincinnati Mineral show and re-acquired in August, 2017.
