This is a classic cubic fluorite specimen from a long-closed locality: the world-famous Denton Mine. The Illinois mines were shut down in the early 1990s, so pieces like this one are now hard to find. The color is a rich purple-violet, and the fluorite is crystallized in the cubic habit with penetrating twins.
