Barite Ball over Sphalerite, with Calcite and Micro fluorite
7.0 cm x 6.3 cm x 4.2 cm

Here is a great example of the Barite formations from the Elmwood Mine. This large ball of barite crystals formed over a large piece of sphalerite. It has some very nice, but small honey colored calcite scalenohedral (dog tooth) crystals. 

There are these tiny spots on areas of the barite that I thought at first were sphalerite, but under magnification these spots turned out to be micro fluorite cubes, and even zoned, very cool.
