NF623 Fluorite with Celestite
Clay Center, Ottawa County, Ohio, United States
10.4x 7.6x 7.0 cm

(Matrix Repaired)


A cabinet specimen hosting three lustrous brown fluorite cubes, on matrix, from recent finds at Clay Center.  The matrix has been glued together in three places by the person who collected it, though it could easily be separated into 2 specimens (the third segment of matrix has nothing on it).  I get the impression that the collector only did this repair out of aesthetic preference, not any real need to repair (the value of the 2 separate pieces would be about that of the whole) and no repairs involve the crystals.
