Quartz on Fluorite

Frazer's Hush mine, Rookhope, Weardale, Co. Durham, England


Frazer's Hush mine is known for the occurance of these quartz / fluorite combination specimens where the quartz crystals epitaxially grow over earlier fluorite crystals giving a cubic form to the specimen. This is an excellent example of the type with a 35mm fluorite cube covered on three sides by lustrous quartz crystals.
