Named for its colourful fluorite deposits, the Rock Candy Mine provided valuable flux to nearby smelters in the early 1900s. Today the heritage property, located outside Grand Forks, BC, is a tourist attraction, where enthusiasts can collect their own purple and green fluorite and sparkly quartz on a sunny hillside above the Granby River.

Rock Candy is a top down triangle shawl. Worked in three colours, with sections of squishy garter, simple lace eyelets, and colourful texture.
