A core of colorless fluorite hosts several yellow, mostly transparent, block barite crystals reaching 1.2 cm. These are accented by a carpet of lavender fluorite 'dust'. Scattered cleaves and chips are noted on this small miniature, but these do not detract at this price. Sits nicely on its naturally flat base.
