Denton mine, Goose Creek Mine Group, Harris Creek Sub-District, Illinois - Kentucky Fluorspar District, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
SOLD
This mine is noted for fine calcite crystals on fluorite. However this is an especially fine cluster of slightly radiating crystals of amber-colored, lustrous, bladed Baryte which is perched on purple fluorite. In turn, the fluorite is studded with tiny calcite crystals. The longest Baryte is 3 cm in length. There is one slight (natural?) divot in one Baryte crystal that is hard to notice but nevertheless is there; otherwise the group is in good shape. The largest of the intergrown fluorite crystal is 1.5 cm across. A label notes that it was collected in 1984. 6.9 x 6.3 x 5.9 cm
