Baryte on Fluorite
Rosiclare Horizon, South-End, Annabel Lee Mine, Illinois, USA
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 6.4 x 5.8 cm
Ex. Ross Lillie
Emplaced aesthetically on a matrix of matte, translucent, deep purple-fluorite crystals to 2.5 cm across are tabular, spear-shaped white Baryte crystals. Both sides of the specimen are good! Complete all around 360 degrees, it displays well from either side, the only difference being due to personal taste. They are dramatic and stand contrasted to the fluorite in form and color. They are to 3.5 cm in length. This specimen was mined in December 1985 by Ross Lillie himself in the mine. RCL 1662
