||Barite on Fluorite, Sphalerite and Galena
Mahoning#1 Mine, (Minerva #1 Mine) Cave in Rock Subdustrict, Hardin Coun
Illinois, United States
7 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
An esthetic 2 tone (blue and creme) flowerlike display of barite crystals perched on a contrasting matrix of dark purple fluorite crystals and dark red-brown Sphalerite. Beautiful, old classic stuff, Ex John Marshall collection. By naked eye this is perfect damagewise, only with 10x magnification one tiny corner bruise can be found. In short this is really a fine specimen that shows very well and is now quite uncommon in any condition on todays market.
