3.7 x 2.4 x 1.3 cm. The Stoneco Auglaize Quarry has produced many fine Fluorite specimens, but very few more beautiful and sharp than those in this cluster. There are eight transparent, lustrous crystals of nearly colorless Fluorite with rich, violet cores, stacked in a way that all are visible. The coup de grace is the top crystal, which is 1 cm in length and has excellent clarity, very good luster, and a razor-sharp core that gives this, and all the others, a true beauty all their own. These were highly sought after in the Ohio community in the 1970's and 1980's, and few outside the locals have pieces like this. Ex. Jeffrey Starr Collection. Photos by Jeffrey Starr.
