Fluorite on Barite (Baryte) from  La Cabaña, Berbes, Spain

Dimension: 5.3cm x 3.8cm x 2.8cm

Weight: 84g

Locality: La Cabaña, Berbes mining area, Ribadesella, Asturias, Spain


Both Barite and Fluorite are famously known from this now-closed mine of La Cabaña in Spain.  This is such a great combination piece, where both are equally balanced and are aesthetically appealing.  The stark contrast of the forms and colors of the Barite and the Fluorite is very eye-catching.  The translucent deep purple cubic Fluorite beautifully perched onto a matrix of bladed Barite.  The color of the Barite crystals is between creamy white and light peachy-orange, magnificent!
