Intensely colored blue Fluorite crystal from the La Barre Mine. The color is a pleasing deep blue, just what you would want in Fluorite, with lots of well defined phantoms. There is some edge wear but it's in good condition overall, and highly transparent. I think it looks nicer in person than the photos as you can see the depth and range of colors better.

Pyrite specimens always make some of the brightest and showy of mineral specimens, and those with octahedral crystals such as this old timer are mush less common than most. This specimen has well formed crystals to 2.5cm wide intergrown with grey Enargite crystals and dates back to approximately the 1980s.The Morococha mine is a large silver mine located in the center of Peru in Junín Region.
