Bryce Colwell Collection I’m always fascinated by this style of fluorite from Elmwood. The crystals are limpid pale purple with phantoms that look like a white “iron cross” when viewed on a cube face. Dozens of these crystals are scattered on a reddish black sphalerite matrix and a mass of creamy white barite is on top for a little extra contrast.
