You've seen plenty of these on the market these days. It's a popular American locality which has produced countless beautiful groups of Fluorite, Calcite, Sphalerite and Barite. This specimen is nearly flawless, albeit, a partially cleaved matrix base, although you can expect that with any Elmwood piece. This crystal has the best amber orange color sought after in these pieces, the luster is great and the crystal edges are sharp. The large main crystal is 9cm long, You can see the twin plane in a few photos. With a little help, it displays marvelously.
