Purple Cubic Fluorite on Sphalerite/ Elmwood Mine
Beautiful beveled Purple Cubic Fluorite showing off on a bed of Sphalerite from Elmwood Mine!
The Elmwood Mine in Carthage, Tennessee (USA) is a classic locale. Discovered in 1967, it begun operations as a zinc mine in 1975. Calcite and Fluorite, along with fine Barite and Sphalerite specimens are considered an ordinary by product of the zinc mining industry. The mine has closed and reopened off and on over the years, but the demand for these world class specimens has always remained.
