Baryte, Fluorite
Denton mine, Goose Creek Mine Group, Harris Creek Sub-District, Illinois - Kentucky Fluorspar District, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 4.4 x 3.1 cm
Ex. Martin Zinn
Another very unusual AND beautiful Marty Zinn specimen. You mostly think of fluorite and calcite when you think of the Denton Mine, with baryte as an "accessory" mineral. But here, you have a stunning specimen where baryte is the star -- in the form of lustrous, frosty arch-shaped crystals on a base of yellow fluorite! The crystals measure to 1.5 cm.
