ID: CC8783
This good-sized cabinet specimen of creamy to pale lilac Fluorite on cockscomb blades of Baryte is from the Tannenboden mine, a little to the south of Wieden in the Black Forest.  This mine exploited a Fluorite vein rich in silver, arsenic and antimony.  Cubic crystals of Fluorite, some elongated on one axis, have naturally etched sucrosic surfaces and are surrounded by curved mounds and parallel growths of white Baryte crystals to 3 cm across.
