Sweet day on the digs!
Check out some of the sweet purple Fluorite I got while out digging with Anita.

This small Fluorite plate is going to clean up nicely. After cleaning it off more, they look to be very deep purple.

It was 8 below 0 the other morning so too cold to dig right now, but good weather for staying inside to clean goodies. Here are a few more that are getting a cleaning.

After a closer look at that last plate, it seems there were a few baby blue Fluorites hiding out. Nature was kind on this dig! wub.gif

You crack me up Faaus! The blue ones are my favorite.....

Here is an amazing Fluorite Anita found and gave to Dan for his birthday several years back. Its purple on the one side, and powder blue on the other, with snow white Microcline on the bottom.
wub.gif Weighs just under 2 pounds! Sure is a pretty one!



Come on CP........Lets see its pretty blue side! Flip it around would you please?
