One large fluorite cube coated in micro quartz crystals dominates this specimen, with red hematite oriented on one face. Several chalcopyrite tetrahedra can be seen on the surface surrounded by some yellow oxide staining. This sparkly specimen comes from the Canada Fluorspar Inc. Mine, which was, until recently, mining a fluorite vein in a cluster of fluorite veins that have been mined on and off for decades.  The company identified a significant fluorite bearing structure hosted in the meta-sediments which has been intruded by rhyolite sills and dykes. The Mine is currently closed and it may open again, sometime in the future.
