Sprouting up from a crudely crystalline, brown and purple fluorite matrix are numerous clusters of spiky, elongated calcite scalenohedra upon which sits clusters of snow white barite blades. The tallest calcite cluster is over 8 cm, while the barites top out at just under 3 cm. The barites have modest white fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave UV. Many display angles are possible. Sits as shown without need for additional support, but the perfect display angles would need a stand. No significant damage is noted.
