Stepped Fluorite w/ Barite
Put me on the Waiting List
From: Cave-in-Rock, Illinois, USA
Size: 8.1 x 5.3 x 4.0cm
This is a very interesting fluorite specimen from Illinois because there is a lot going on here. Basically, what we have here is a yellow fluorite with an outer phantom layer of purple, however, it's more complex than that. Many of the fluorite cubes have sharp, distinct edges between the yellow and purple zones, but in other areas the purple is actually a dendritic and could actually be a mix of barite and fluorite growing together. The faces of the fluorite cubes are stepped, and there are white barite crystals growing on the surface in a few places. The condition is quite good and there is even some crystal regrowth around the areas where the specimen once broke off from it's host rock, so it is partially rehealed in places. The front crystals have sharp edges and corners.
The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
