Fluorite with Barite
Small Cabinet, 9.7 x 8.6 x 4.2 cm
Rock Candy Mine, Grand Forks, British Columbia, Canada

Rock Candy Mine has produced some of the best Canadian fluorite, but it was decades ago in the 1970s and 1980s, mostly. This specimen is a large translucent plate with sharp octohedral crystals, coated with little barites on some faces (otherwise, it would easily be mistaken for a Hunan, China piece!). It displays from several angles and is a really showy example of a defunct locale, we seldom see for sale. From the collection of Dr. Art Soregaroli.
