Baryte and Calcite
Small Cabinet, 7.1 x 5.5 x 3.0 cm
Sicily, Italy
Ex. Herb Obodda; Giancarlo Fioravanti
Striking combination of blue/green-Baryte associated with fan-like blades of Calcite. The Baryte blades are gemmy with superb luster, but what really makes this piece are the sharp phantom lines within the larger 3 cm crystal. The color zones are razor sharp - as detailed as you will ever see. The sparkly Calcites are also attractive, as a contrast. A classic old Italian piece from the Giancarlo Fioravanti collection.
