|Banded Fluorite. |
The tag that came with sample reads as follows:
Banded Fluorite, Sierra County, New MexicoI traded this sample for a few of my strange copper nodules.
This specimen was found in the steep section of tailings of an abandoned mine. Also included with some specimens are quartz, barite, granite and/or jasper. It fluoresces a nice vibrant purplish blue in both short & long wave ultra-violet light.
