Huge and very heavy museum specimen of dark to rasperry purple fluorite in cubic color zoned crystals from the W L Davis - Deardorff Mine, Ozark - Mahoning Group, Cave-in-Rock District, Hardin County, Illinois.  This mine produced some of the largest fluorite clusters found in the Illinois Fluorspar District.  The photos do not show the translucency and gemmy color of the crystals.    This old specimen is in excellent condition, with only a couple small cleaved corners on a specimen with more than a hundred corners showing.  It measures 28 x 15 x 8 inches (71.2 x 38.1 x 20.s cm).  I don't have a scale big enough to weigh it, but I would estimate around 200 pounds.  Obviously shipping would be VERY expensive, so a shop visit would probably be required.
