South Ontario Limestone Quarries, Fluorite

The Limestone/dolomite quarries of Wentworth County, South Western Ontario have long been a favourite collecting spot for people of the region. For good reason! The fluorite, celestine, sphalerite and galena specimens are very good! The fluorite crystals from this location usually have cloudy interiors, often in the shape of a cross and the corners of the dominant cube are clear. Sometimes their colour is a deep golden brown, particularly towards the centre and at other times they are colourless. Many of the fluorite crystal at these location occur in voids that are the remains of long vanished stromatolite and colony-coral fossils.
