Purple Fluorite on Sphalerite with Barite


This formation of purple fluorite on sphalerite with barite was mined in Elmwood, Tennessee and displays scattered barite over a layer of large, transparent, lilac fluorite cubes over a metallic sphalerite base. The dark, oily-looking sphalerite gives an ethereal, even alien vibe that's visually juxtaposed by the roughly textured, matte off-white barite blossoming off of the fluorite.

Dimensions: 7"L x 6"W x 6"H, Weight: 13.5 lb.
