This specimen boasts superior purple-pink sunlight sensitivity and zoning. 

Helen's Pocket represents a singular area within the expansive Wilson Vein, a discovery made only in October 2020.

Exceptional Fluorite crystals, characterized by interpenetrant twinning and a subtle leaf-green hue, intricately blanket an ironstone matrix. These crystals, often transparent and exceptionally gem-like, exhibit a radiant luster. The larger twins, measuring over 2 cm, showcase mirror-flat faces adorned with fine concentric rectangular growth patterns. When exposed to sunlight, these crystals fluoresce in royal purple, with the larger twins displaying varying intensities.

The nomenclature for this pocket pays homage to Helen Wilkinson, who gathered exquisite specimens from this site in the late 1990s.
