Fluorite with Baryte and Chalcopyrite

ID: CC18746
This small cabinet specimen of pale red Baryte and brassy-golden Chalcopyrite crystals scattered over unusually coloured cubic crystals of Fluorite is from the comparatively new and still operating Niederschlag mine in the Erzgebirge District of Saxony, Germany.  This mine commenced operations in October 2010 and is accessed by the Neu Straßburger Glück adit, providing ramp access.  I say the Fluorite is an unusual colour because in artificial (fluorescent light) is appears a deep, translucent chocolate brown.  But examined closely and in daylight, varies between a deep inky sea green and darky smoky mustard yellow.  Unusual colours to say the least!  The Chalcopyrite crystals are well developed to a few millimetres, making a most attractive specimen from this modern mine.
