ID: CC10882
A great example of deep blackberry Fluorite from the Frisch Glück Adit, a haulage and ventilation adit driven in 1947 to service the Bergmännisch Glück Flacher mine.  Opaque, dark blackberry, cubic Fluorite crystals to 1.9 cm on edge appear almost black against the dusting of micro Calcite crystals which coat several of the smaller Fluorites.  The Calcite is light biscuit-tan and has occasional golden Baryte crystals up to about 5 mm tall.  The Fluorite crystals across the back of the specimen are cleaved and naturally etched, with areas re-lined with the micro-Calcite crystals.  A terrific Fluorite with Baryte from the Frisch Glück Adit in Frohnau, Saxony, Germany.
