This exceptional large plate is one of the more remarkable fluorite specimens recovered from the Sweet Home, and it is covered with deep purple fluorite phantoms to 1.5 cm in size (most average 1 cm) with rhodochrosite on quartz. These crystals were unique to this pocket, and are quite different in style and depth of color from the other pockets found. From the Jelly Pocket (2000), Sweet Home Mine. Measure 15 x 13 x 4 cm.
