A wonderful group of baryte! It shows aesthetic on highest level. The baryte rose is light beige, like ivory. At the top you can see some tiny, colorless, sharp optical cubes. At the base you can see one large fluorite crystal. It is also sharp terminated, all faces are highly lustrous. The color is light lavender with some razor sharp, thin phantoms in violet and blue. Looks great in various positions, both minerals are on very high quality. No significant damages to report.
