Barite with Fluorite (US classic)
Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
7.9 x 5.8 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1150


An outstanding classic that is rarely seen on the market. Sheaves of fine blue Barite crystals in radiating habit on a contrasting Calcite matrix. Fluorites are noted on the edge and backside, but the main impact is from the Barite. Ex John Marshall collection, this has the rare strong blue color, most Barites were a cream white to gray hue. In very good condition as seen, the piece is very three dimensional with top color and form. A fine addition to any good suite of southern Illinois minerals, US classics or Barites.
