Franklinite with Willemite
A textbook, classic, 1.5 cm, lustrous Franklinite crystal with interesting beveled edges is perched on matrix of rose-tan Willemite, innumerable smaller and broken Franklinites and a bit of Calcite. This is classic combination material from the Franklin Mine of New Jersey and the Marty Zinn Collection, # 8499. The Willemite has a superb green fluorescence. The calcite fluoresces a more muted red, in this instance.
