This is an outstanding large group of gemmy, deep blue-green Fluorite crystals from the famous Rogerley mine in Durham, England. Since the closure of the Rogerley mine a few years ago, these world-class fluorites have become harder to come by, and this is a superb large example with the best color and transparency the locale has to offer. The placement of relatively isolated, penetration-twinned crystals on the matrix is very aesthetic, and in daylight these crystals show the marked 'daylight fluorescence' that fluorite from this mine in known for. A fine British classic that is becoming scarce on the market! Tom Spann photo. Ex - Dave Matak Collection
