Abstract

Fluorite makes up 20-30% of a zeolitic tuff in a Pliocene or Pleistocene lacustrine facies of the Gila Conglomerate that has not been subjected to hydrothermal activity. The fluorite occurs as prolate pellets and, rarely, as ooids that are mostly 0.1-0.3 mm in size are probably the result of primary precipitation of fluorite and magadiite where dilute, calcium-bearing water from springs or streams mixed with the saline, alkaline lake water that had a high fluorine content.-from Authors
