Item Description

Glassy, pearlescent barite spear-points in en-echelon bundles are richly and attractively mounded on the bit of fluorite matrix on this classic and aesthetic specimen from the Annabel Lee Mine of Southern Illinois. An excellent and highly representative example of the species and noted locale. These were always rare and highly treasured and valued, by the local miners. Ex Jaime Bird Coll.
