This is an unusual and rare combination piece from the famous Minerva #1 mine. The 1-cm radial sprays of gemmy, fluorescent Strontianites are spread out among the white Baryte blades, and both are in excellent condition. All sit on a core of gemmy, dark purple and blue Fluorite. An attractive and quality combination piece. Mined in 1990. RCL0437
