Calcite on Fluorite, Sub-Rosiclare Level, Bahama Pod, Denton Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Harris Creek District, Southern Illinois Miniature 4 x 5 x 6.5 cm $375. Online 4/3 SOLD
Bright, lustrous calcite crystals liberally scattered over a deep purple fluorite matrix. These are unmistakable combinations from the district mined in the early 1990s during the great producing days of this orebody. I recall buying dozens of flats of this material per trip to the district but since the closure in 1994 the material is rare on the market. In great condition. Mined c. 1992.
