Fluorite with Barite, Sub-Rosiclare Level, Annabel Lee Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Harris Creek District, Southern Illinois Medium cabinet 6.5 x 12 x 12 cm $3800. Online 9/2. SOLD.
Group of zoned blue, purple and yellow fluorite with associated barite. No point of attachment as the specimen dislodged from the side of the pocket, slumped in the center and partially re-grew on the base. In great condition. Roy Smith Collection M1571. Mr. Smith notes: "Obtained from dealer Ernie Collins in Benton, KY in Apr 1995. He obtained from miners." Mr. Smith's location is attributed to the Denton Mine but in actuality it is from the Annabel Lee Mine due to the color of fluorite and the association with this type of barite. Mineral dealer Collins in all likely-hood guessed at the location and passed the information onto Mr. Smith. Beautiful color and no faults
