Y1612 Fluorite
Rogerley mine, Weardale, Durham Co., England, United Kingdom
10.9x 8.5x 2.7 cm
$385

A nice cabinet sized specimen of fluorite from the famous Rogerly Mine, with the typical green/purple color and day fluorescence you would expect.  There are a couple small cleaves, but nothing major.

In past years there were so many of these, I would mostly just skip over them-- the word this year however, is that the mine is closing so I picked up 2 to post here......... and as always when a mine closes, I'm left wondering why I didn't buy more when they were abundant.
