This large and aesthetic piece features two parallel rows of intersecting transparent purple cubic Fluorite crystals set on a sandy colored and textured matrix. Darker purple zoning can be seen the Fluorite crystals. The striking contrast of color and texture along with amazing color, luster, balance and symmetry makes for an outstanding specimen from the well known Cave-In-Rock Quarry location. In excellent condition (with some minor edge contact due to unavoidable specimen extraction).
Location: Cave-In-Rock Quarry, Hardin County, Illinois, USA
