3.4" Yellow Cubic Fluorite Crystal Cluster - Annabel Lee Mine

This is a gorgeous, yellow cubic fluorite crystal cluster from the Annabel Lee Mine in the Harris Creek Mining Sub-District of Hardin County, Illinois. When viewing the crystals from their flat faces, purple phantoms can be seen right along the exterior crystal faces.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Fluorite is a halide mineral comprised of calcium and fluorine, CaF2. The word fluorite is from the Latin fluo-, which means "to flow". In 1852 fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon known as fluorescence, or the property of fluorite to glow a different color depending upon the bandwidth of the ultraviolet light it is exposed to. Fluorite occurs commonly in cubic, octahedral, and dodecahedral crystals in many different colors. These colors range from colorless and completely transparent to yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, or black. Purples and greens tend to be the most common colors seen, and colorless, pink, and black are the rarest.
