Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County, Illinois, United States of America

Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Crystal cluster
Origin (Region/ City): Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County, Illinois
Origin (Country): U.S.

Dimensions: 10.0 x 9.0 x 8.0 cm

An amazing opportunity to witness this Mississippi-type Fluorite crystals with their well known dissolution features, an interesting tidbit for the Geologists out there! These crystals form as a two generation phase and a post-formation fluid event dissolved and exposed these crystals into their present shape! The crystals are interestingly lustrous, well saturated, with their purple edges clear and well translucent and tinted a strong lilac colour! An attractive piece and a great collectable specimen from the famous U.S. locality!

    E' da circa 20 giorni che il lotto si trova alla dogana fermo lì. Non ho ricevuto nessuna comunicazione via posta dalla dogana e spero non si sia persa. Spero non torni indietro.

    El pedido ha llegado perfectamente embalado. Como única pega, si cabe destacar, pensaba que los cristales eran un poquito más grandes. Pero estoy contento con la pieza.

  • Shipping fees seem a bit high compared to the actual price of postage and how long it took to arrive.

    Exemplaire de fluorine très bas en qualité, vert pâle et les cristaux mal définis avec 3 pointes émoussées. On pouvait s'attendre à mieux avec
    une fluorine en provenance d'Afrique du Sud. WARNING !

    Response by seller
    Dear Sir/Mdm,

    Firstly, I apologize for the displeasure you have had with the mineral we had sent. It was not our intention to deceive or otherwise. We are mineral collectors just like you. While it is unfortunate that the quality was not up to your standards, we stand by our belief that we had fairly represent this piece. The pictures and photographs we had put up had not been edited in any way, and the blemishes, if any would be shown rather than hidden in our photographs. The fluorite in question does indeed come from South Africa in the Riemvasmaak as we had personally obtained them during a trip over there.

    While we do understand your unhappiness, we find that the Warning as unwarranted and unnecessary.

    While your experience was unfortunate, it is definitely not normal and we would have appreciated a personal message to which we may solve any issue. Regardless, wish you only the best and a very blessed year to come!

    -JC Minerals.
