Yellow Fluorites from Germany are one of the well-known and sought-after colors from this region, but combined with these golden Barytes they create a very appealing specimen. The Fluorites are cubic, gemmy, and up to about 3 mm in size. There are many that populate the matrix. On top of these, and the matrix, are a dozen or so lustrous Barytes that range from a rich yellow to a gemmy golden amber along the edges. Super attractive, this color combination looks a lot like the famous Baryte/yellow Calcite nodules from Elk Creek. Again, we had simply not seen any Barytes from here before, associated with the fluorite, but it stands on its own merit anyhow.
