Purple Fluorite Cubes On Quartz Xl.: Micromount-sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado For Sale

Purple Fluorite Cubes On Quartz Xl.: Micromount-sweet Home Mine, Alma, Colorado

Along with rhodochrosite, the Sweet Home Mine is also renowned for purple fluorite cubes on quartz crystals. Here's a particularly good example of the latter. A 1.8 cm. long clear single terminated quartz crystal hosts three purple fluorite cubes, two on one face of the hexagon, one on the opposite face. For this reason, it makes all the sense in the world that the specimen is mounted horizontally with mineral tack on the black plastic top of a two piece micromount display case the main part of which is clear plastic. Mounted vertically, it would be difficult to appreciate the fluorite. If mounted horizontally with glue, at least one of the crystals would be invisible if not caked in glue. This leaves you with the entire specimen to enjoy and a choice regarding how to do so.

This specimen and all micromounts, by definition require significant magnification to be appreciated. The micromounts offered for sale at this site have been photographed at between 10x and 40x. We ship up to 6 micromounts in a 4 inch x 4 inch x 4 inch box. Our micromounts come mounted in plastic boxes ranging in size from a little less to a little more than one cubic inch. Many are from various older collections. Identifications typically speak for themselves pursuant to the labels that are usually original and affixed to the case bearing the specimen when I obtained it. Whenever these identifications are not immediately obvious, I research as much as possible relying on MINDAT and other sources. Usually the specimens are mounted with glue to a pedestal that’s often fabricated from cork, wood, or plastic, which in turn has been glued to the bottom of a plastic micromount display case. Some specimens, however, are more simply mounted to the bottom of their cases with a plastic based putty known as “Mineral Tack.” Before we list and before shipping, we check to ascertain that each specimen is firmly mounted. When appropriate, we’ll enclose a bit of batting or similar material within the micromount case to help assure that the specimen remains firmly mounted during shipping. Even so, it’s not impossible for such a micromount to become dislodged during shipping. Occasionally this damages the specimen, but usually not. Should a specimen arrive damaged, we issue an immediate refund. Should a micromount specimen selling for more than $10.00 US arrive damaged we request that it be returned and will refund your payment and reimburse your shipping costs to return it.
