Thanks Tobi. I have another one from this same location ( https://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/download.php?id=92584 ) with much larger crystals, but I really like the calcite accent on this piece.

I like it too. The other specimen is also very aesthetic but I would prefer the one above because of the contrasting calcite crystals. However, both very nice, Choir is also on my fluorite wish list ;-)

Although the Minerva #1 Mine is famous for it's exquisite color-zoned fluorites, it also produced some remarkable specimens of barite, strontianite, witherite, and benstonite. The little barite shown below was collected in the 1960s and is one of my favorites from this location.

Thank you for your comment Tobi. I have been looking to add one of these to our Moroccan suite for some time and this one checked all of the boxes.

Stay well,
Michael
