I was privileged in having met Byron Weege, and Bill Pogue of UK Mining Ventures at the Tucson Show 2006. They mine the Rogerley seasonally. It's always great meeting the people that laboriously excavate these beauties from the mines for us collectors to enjoy! So, I was very happy to procure a few of these very beautiful specimens, like the ones shown here for sale! I have several Fluorite specimens from different localities around the world in my personal collection, and these from the Rogerley Mine have their own very beautiful and unique characteristics! When held in the sunlight, these crystals take on a gorgeous purplish hue!!!

The whitish - brown calcified deposits overgrown on some of the Fluorite crystals, gives this specimen a different look from this locality.
Yet, it is a stark contrast to the very glassy, and rich emerald green classic Rogerley twinned Fluorite crystals.
The two bigger crystals in the center of this specimen, really stand out! Very nice small cab.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the photographs are not to scale. Some are enlarged to give you an accurate and an in depth view of all the details for you to see. Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect. If a specimen has knowingly been repaired, I will always disclose this information to you.
