A fine old English "oakstone" a sliced part of a Barite Stalactite with one face polished. The concentric structure is well-exposed on the polished face, it is quite chantoyant. From the collection of Dr. Warren Johansson, it was a gift to him from Al Shattuck in 1932.
A sharp, translucent and well-formed Ladywash Mine Fluorite is nicely decorated with multi-hued Chalcopyrite crystals outside and inside the zoned crystals. In fine condition and with delicate hues this has no matrix at all. The Fluorites when backlit show many Chalcopyrite crystals inside forming distinct phantoms. Choice.

English (Derbyshire) Fluorite with great esthetics and in fine condition. An old specimen (comes with a label from Commercial Mineral corp. vintage 1965) There are small sharp Pyrites and Calcites scattered on many faces. No mine name is on the old label but we are assured this is a fine example from the Ladywash Mine in Eyan. Sharp edged zoned crystals to 6.8 cm are large for the area and overall this is an attractive Fluorite in fine shape
