Crystal - Fluorite Crystal Cluster from southern Illinois
Fluorite Crystal Cluster in yellow and blue - Translucent yellow center cubes with clear overlay that has just a hint of blue/purple fluorite. Smaller cubes have crisp edges. Larger cube has white barite inclusions floating in clear layer. You can clearly see the original yellow cube that formed, and then was coated with a thick clear - slightly blue- fluorite layer. Large crystal has some hopper growth where smaller cubes grew irregularly on the flat surface. Very cool specimen!
