SOLD Fluorite, Hill-Ledford Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Cave-in-Rock District, Southern Illinois, Mined c. early 1960s, Dr. Perry & Anne Bynum Collection, Medium Cabinet 4.5 x 10.0 x 13.0 cm, $200. Online 10/5.
SOLD Group of light purple and clear fluorite with abundant dark purple 'spots' surrounding micro chalcopyrite inclusions. The association with galena breccia, color and luster of fluorite and era of collection point to the Hill-Ledford Mine as a locality but this is an educated attribution. It is quite possible it came from the Deardorff Mine as well. In either case, a fine medium cabinet specimen in excellent condition from the collection of Dr. H. Perry & Anne Bynum. Mined circa 1960s.
