Barite on Fluorite
Minerva Mine #1, Rosiclare Level, Cave in Rock
10.4 x 6.5 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
Worldwide mix summer
Sharp contrast of the bluish white Barite crystals with the purple Fluorites in a classic combination. Ex York collection. This is dated 1992, so it is from the last part of the mining period. In fine condition the Barites are all perfect, undamaged, there are some very tiny cleaves on Fluorites that is not noticeable. A modern US classic that is better in person.
