Fluorite, Sub-Rosiclare Level, Annabel Lee Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Harris Creek District Southern Illinois, Mined November 1993, Sam & Ann Koster Collection #00427, Small Cabinet 5.5 x 6.0 x 7.0 cm, $500. Online 3/4/15. SOLD.
A series of fine pockets were found in the Sub-Rosiclare Level of the mine that produced unique material. Some fluorite was remarkably similar to Elmwood material such as this piece. In terms of texture, slightly raised, transparent corners, and color, light pastel yellow with a grapey purple rim and light purple zoned center. An excellent specimen from mining in November 1993. Sam & Ann Koster Collection #00427.
