Fluorite on Baryte
Sub-Rosiclare Level, Poe Pod, Annabel Lee Mine, Harris Creek District, Illinois, USA
Large Cabinet, 18.0 x 14.0 x 13.0 cm
Ex. Ross Lillie
Impressive, large combination piece of deep purple Fluorite on a huge knob of crystalline Baryte. The Fluorite has good luster, and it is quite rare to find such isolated crystals like this on matrix. The largest Fluorite is 5.5 cm, and has a back lower corner with minor damage. Fortunately, it really isn't visible as you view the piece and Ross Lillie's own label notes this, versus the rarity of such good aesthetics for this style and location. Overall, the aesthetics, size, and rarity make this a very fine specimen, and it is certainly visually impressive. RCL1488
