Large Fluorite with chalcopyrite Ice Cube Pocket Yorkshire UK

$200.00Price

This specimen of fluorite with chalcopyrite inclusions comes from the most productive Yorkshire. This piece comes from the Ice Cube pocket from the Gillshead Mine, Skyreholme North Yorkshire, England. The Gillshead Mine opened as a lead mine well before the 1700s and closed in the 1900s then reopened in the 1920s for fluorite mining, it did permanently close commercially in 1980s. All new production is from hobbyist miners and collectors.

This is a large cabinet sized specimen, excellent purple tips and chalcopyrite. Again all pieces from the ice cube pocket are self collected and reside in personal collections, this piece is of substantial size and a great prize.
