The Pöhla-Tellerhäuser mine was a polymetallic producer whose main ore was uranium, beginning operation in 1947 and finally closing in 1991.  The deposit is hosted within a faulted anticline and syncline of late Cambrian-Ordovician age from which over 100 mineral species are recorded.  From this fascinating mine we have a beautiful miniature Baryte composed of slightly yellow, creamy translucent crystals with golden honey terminations, the largest measuring 3.5 cm tall.  These cover a thin greyish-cream plate of Quartz epimorphs of former cubic Fluorite crystals on its base.
