Baryte on Calcite
Cabinet, 12.2 x 8.7 x 7.2 cm
Minerva #1, Rosiclare Level, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Ex. Ross Lillie
Overgrowing a core of fluorite are tabular crystals, to 2.3 cm across, of sparkling, snow-white Baryte. Perched nicely on the Baryte are lustrous and translucent, light amber colored calcite crystals to 5.6 cm in length. This largest calcite is also doubly terminated. From advance mining in northeast drift. This is another really unique, aesthetic specimen from the Lillie collection. Previous dealer price on this was $3500 in the collection sale, and it is frankly worth that, in my opinion (though we amortized most prices downward in making a large deal to bring these to the web.)
