- Fluorite and Calcite on Baryte
- Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 6.1 x 4.5 cm
- Minerva #1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
A competitive level display specimen, this combination is classic for Minerva, where you have zoned Fluorite and Calcites on white Baryte. The gemmy Fluorite is dominated by a yellow core, with a clear, outer, light blue zone that has hints of whispy purple. The prismatic Calcites are gemmy and highly lustrous, and several reach 1.4 cm long. All the species fluoresce. This is an excellent, aesthetic, and highly representative combination piece. Comes with a custom base.
