Denton Mine, Harris Creek Sub-District, Hardin County, Illinois, USA
A classic fluorite shows rich purple color over a core of yellow and is from the famous Denton Mine in Illinois, USA. The fluorite cubes are transparent with intergrowth and areas of stepped habit. Tiny brassy crystals of chalcopyrite are embedded on and within the fluorite creating the famous “speckled” look and add detail to the piece. Undamaged and responsive to light, this is a great miniature of this famous place.
