Cabinet sized specimen of Raspberry Fluorite with Baryte!
It's extremely difficult to find the raspberry color of Elmwood Fluorite in anything
larger than a small miniature. This specimen is the largest I have ever seen and measures
14 by 12.5 cm in total size. The color is incredible and the combination of Baryte and
Sphalerite only adds to the aesthetics. From the Elmwood Mine, Smith County, Tennessee.
