Barite with Fluorite, Rosiclare Level Victory Mine, Spar Mountain Area, Cave-in-Rock District Southern Illinois, Collected c. early 1960s, Dr. Perry & Anne Bynum Collection, Miniature 2.0 x 3.0 x 6.5 cm, $200. Online 7/28. SOLD.
Exceedingly rare specimen from the Victory Mine. This is the first of these I have ever seen. Some great examples came out of the Annabel Lee Mine in the late 1980s but this habit is unprecedented in my experience from Spar Mountain. In excellent condition. Dr. H. Perry & Anne Bynum Collection.
