WOW! What a classic English masterpiece! Found in the famous "Jewel Box Pocket" in Summer 2008, this piece is easily one of the very best specimens from the recent mining period at the Rogerly mine! The luster and clarity of this particular pocket is shockingly fine and still unrivaled. Three large and sharp twins rest amidst smaller fluorite and galena crystals on a cabinet sized matrix. Published in Lapis magazine several times (January 2010 issue), and in the book "Mineralienbilder" by Hilde Könighofer, page 145. The clarity is fantastic and the fluorescence in daylight is just jaw-dropping! A masterpiece by all standards! Ex Robert Brandstetter collection.
