Baryte, Calcite, Fluorite
Denton mine, Goose Creek Mine Group, Harris Creek Sub-District, Illinois - Kentucky Fluorspar District, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Miniature, 4.9 x 2.8 x 1.4 cm
This pretty mini came out of the collection of Illinois collector Ross Lillie. The accompanying label says it came from "advance mining in 1-83 from the northwest edge main ore body." What makes it really cool is this gemmy, tabular golden BARYTE, which beautifully complements the zoned purple fluorites decorated with little calcites.
