Here is some fluorite (purple) and calcite (yellow) on sphalerite (silver). No further comments, I just thought this was pretty.
I took way too many photos at the show and most of them were interesting, making it difficult to write this post. Without further ado, here are the highlights from the Spring 2016 Gem and Mineral Show.
This gorgeous crystal specimen is perfect for Christmas! It has red rhodochrosite crystals on a green matrix (green pyrite?), with pale lavender fluorite cyrstals that look like little snowdrifts. From Steve’s Pocket, Fluorite Raise, Sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado.
Fluorite comes in just about every color of the rainbow, and is found all over the world in most areas of North America, Europe, and China. These are some of my favorite photos of fluorite.
Fluorite is pretty on its own, but it’s simply amazing how the most common minerals look so awesome when made into these polished spheres.
