Baryte, Fluorite
Annabel Lee mine, Harris Creek Sub-District, Illinois - Kentucky Fluorspar District, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Cabinet, 11.0 x 8.7 x 7.5 cm
Glassy, pearlescent baryte spear-points in en echelon bundles are richly and attractively mounded on the bit of fluorite matrix on this classic and aesthetic cabinet specimen from the Annabel Lee Mine of Southern Illinois. An excellent and highly representative large example of the species and noted locale. Always these were rare and highly treasured and valued, by the local miners.
