This is an excellent large group of sharp gemmy yellow color-zoned fluorite crystals on white barite matrix from the Minerva #1 mine, Cave-in-Rock District, Hardin County, Illinois, USA. A fine old-time fluorite and barite from the famous Illinois Fluorite District, with sharp, vibrant crystals showing great color and transparency. The barite association really sets off this fine display piece. Ex. Ed Francis collection. Mark Cross photo. Classic!!
