Nancy Hanks Claim, Colorado, U.S.A.
This piece consists of a Fluorite crust that partly coats a brown quartzite or sandstone base. The crust is made up of countless small Fluorite octahedrons that are extremely intergrown. It is in good condition, but one can only just discern the crystals therein. They have a pale green color and a greasy luster and are translucent. Many tiny quartz crystals rest on this crust- they do not exceed 0.1" (3 mm) in length and show good hexagonal form.
