Lustrous and gemmy, these clear Fluorites have just the slightest hint of a pale lavender-grey color and form a pleasing cascade of cubes contrasting to the associated white baryte. The outer zone is a light blue, with a very thin, darker, medium blue zone at its base. The largest Fluorite is 3.5 cm, and the faces have a small amount of texture to them. The associated Barytes are bladed and very sharp, with the largest reaching over 1.5 cm. They are draped very nicely over some of the Fluorites, and the Baryte matrix below the Fluorites can be seen right through the Fluorites. An aesthetic, quality combination piece from old mining here. Classic, and elegant! An old specimen probably from the 1980s or 1990s, from the Spain suite of the Art Soregaroli collection.
