Baryte, Fluorite
Rock Candy Mine, Grand Forks, Greenwood Mining Division, British Columbia, Canada
Cabinet, 11.2 x 9.4 x 5.1 cm
This is a classic combo from the Rock Candy Mine in British Columbia: platy, light blue-grey Barytes with translucent purple fluorite. The translucent lavender fluorite crystals are incredibly intricate, looking up-close like assemblages of hundreds of tiny cubes stacked in layers. The Barytes are nicely isolated on the fluorite in a good balance, standing on edge, with white edges and translucent faces.
