Calcite/Fluorite vein

Copyright © Barry Flannery  - This image is copyrighted. Unauthorized reproduction prohibited.

View of one of the thicker veins of calcite containing massive fluorite. Sadly the vein is heavily fractured and the fluorite readily disintegrates. Sulfide mineralization was particularly rich around the cleft midway up the vein. Oxidised galena disseminated through the calcite was common. 21st of December 2009.
