Antique Blue John Bowl - Miniature Turned Specimen Size - Derbyshire Fluorspar (Code 2227)
A gorgeous antique blue john turned bowl. It is of small specimen size and ideal for the collectors cabinet. It shows great structure with a lot of detail having purple streaks, yellow and clear along with some almost olive green areas. The pine resin (used in production of antique examples to stabilise the structure) has mellowed to a warm orange as can be seen. There is also a small inclusion of a brick red piece of mineral. It has a great deal of detail, and it is fascinating to study these blue john pieces.
Good for period, natural flaws as expected. A few scratches to the interior. A few slight surface pits, again from natural formation and production.
