It’s impossible for me to state which localities are my favorites for fluorites. Like Michael Shaw, one of my favorite localities is the Illinois-Kentucky Fluorspar District.

This specimen is in the collection of the Cranbook Institute of Science and formerly in Archibald N. Goddard’s collection. Archibald Goddard was a Cranbrook Trustee from the 1930s to the 1960s (Appleman, Bielat and James, 2000, p. 29, 45).

The specimen itself is in excellent quality and most likely from the Sub-Rosiclare Level, W.L. Davis-Deardorff Mine. The specimen was probably mined during the late 1930s up to the 1950s. The light purple fluorite cubes, the scattered sphalerite crystals and the heavy amount of quartz all seem to indicate that this specimen originated from the Deardoff. The Deardorff Mine was one of Ozark-Mahoning’s richest deposit when Ozark and Mahoning Mining Companies completed their merger.
