Fluorite With Quartz Ps. After Baryte
Cabinet, 11.0 x 8.5 x 6.5 cm
Xianghualing Mine, Linwu, Hunan Province, China

This specimen is distinguished for TWO reasons: one, the quality of the gemmy, large fluorite that caps it; and two, the wonderful pseudomorph crystal opposite it atop the specimen. The fluorite (a compound crystal) is over 3 cm on edge, very gemmy, with wonderful bright green color. The pseudomorph features small white quartz crystals which have retained the sharp form of the large Baryte crystal.
