SOLD Zoned rich yellow and light purple fluorite with chalcopyrite inclusions. This is a very rare fluorite from the mine. Most of these crumbled when collected since the matrix was sugary textured from copious fluid movement. As such, anything more than a corner was difficult to recover. Note localized etching restricted to the purple layer as indicative of this horizon and time period. Mine circa 1980. In excellent condition. Ken & Marilee Holzner Collection #C-005. Entered into Ross C. Lillie database as RCL2655.
