The following is the mines write up. The Purple Haze pocket was discovered in Autumn 2018 adjacent to, and connected with, the Galena Pocket. The two pockets clearly show similarities in their deep purple Fluorites and drusy coatings of lustrous micro-Quartz crystals. Depletion of lead in the depositional fluid chemistry has resulted in only minor amounts of Galena throughout the Purple Haze Pocket. The color of Fluorite appears hazy yet lustrous because of the naturally frosted crystal faces and the complexity of color zoning within individual crystals and interpenetrant twins. Very rarely, the pocket produced Fluorites distorted to an orthorhombic-like habit wherein all three axes are of unequal length.
