A historic specimen coming from the 1970s from a world famous locality, the fabled Minerva No. 1 Mine in Hardin County, Illinois. This particular piece possesses lustrous well formed edge cubes of Fluorite with yellow core and a lilac purple edge that grows preferentially along the outline of the edges. Sparkly Chalcopyrite crystals litter the specimen with a notable dissolution 'core' in the middle of the specimen, a feature highly sought after in Fluorites that contain its geological histories. This piece belonged to a well known collector, Michael Shrike and was in his collection for nearly 20 years.

    Response by seller
    Hi, I understand you are unhappy about the size of the specimen.

    However, I had stated in the description its size. It was also on the title and that clearly stated its size as well.

    Unfortunately, your negative feedback was uncalled for without first reaching out to us for clarification about the size, of which it was clearly stated everywhere, or your displeasure.

    Regards,
    JC Minerals

    Salut, je comprends que vous n'êtes pas satisfait de la taille de l'échantillon.

    Cependant, j'avais indiqué dans la description sa taille. C'était aussi sur le titre et cela indiquait clairement sa taille.

    Malheureusement, vos commentaires négatifs ont été déplacés sans d'abord nous contacter pour obtenir des éclaircissements sur la taille, dont il a été clairement indiqué partout, ou votre mécontentement.

    Cordialement,
    JC Minerals
