OKO-985

OKO-985    Fluor-uvite      Bush Farm, Gouverneur, St. Lawrence County, New York.  Collected by Michael Walter, July 10, 2011.  These are the few remaining specimens from an important find in 2011 that was written about by myself, Drs. George Robinson and Steve Chamberlain in the 2016, vol. 91, no. 6, Nov/Dec. issue of Rocks and Minerals Magazine.  On pages 521-527 we describe numerous important finds, however I believe this to be the best of all those many (almost 200) years.  Rich brown tourmalines with noteworthy gemmy areas of facet grade material were recovered.  These represent the finest fluor-uvites known... and they are even fluorescent!  This piece measures in at 3 x 2.7 x 1.5 cm.  It has one of the rare terminations, being far steeper than normal, which is also damage free.   There are strong contacts around the base from where it grew in a cluster with now crumbled crystals.  Thankfully this rare example survived!  $200
