Robert,
I think your last specimen should be fluorite and CALCITE. I see no baryte.

Tiny little rhombohedral calcites liberally sprinkled over purple fluorite was common in the Harris Creek mining district. Tiny white bladed baryte groups were uncommonly found and looked different. Bob

Thanks.
I should learn to look closer always and not just accept labels as given.
