Description: Large example of golden baryte on green fluorite matrix from this classic German locality. When these barytes were found in the mine, a specialist team would extract them. At the time, most of these were sold in West-Germany in order to bring back western currency to the DDR, although a fair number found their way into the personal collections of the miners.
