Fluorite Crystals Anyone?

If you like rocks and remotely interested in some pretty rocks then a visit to the Ben E. Clements Mineral Museum in Marion, Kentucky should be on your bucket list. For this museum houses one of the finest collection of fluorite crystals in the world. Located in the city of Marion, the Ben E. Clements Mineral Museum is situated in the famous western Kentucky fluorspar mining district. Fluorspar is a mineral that was used as flux in the making of steel. Fluorite is a crystalline form of the mineral and is used today to provide that "fluoride" in our toothpaste. At one time much of the country's fluoride came from this very region around Marion, Kentucky. Overseas discoveries of the mineral and cheaper prices shifted the supplies from other countries now days. The museum  has on display literally hundreds of the beautiful crystals that form naturally like two pyramids standing back to back.
    The fluorite crystals come in all sizes and colors but they all remain true…
