Elmwood mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA
Lustrous, golden-colored scalenohedral crystals of Calcite to 14 mm richly cover a half ball of creamy-yellow Barite. The Barite is incomplete on the reverse, and a few Calcite are cleaved, but this is an unusual and rare association from Elmwood. The Calcite fluoresces a dark mandarin orange.
