Barite is well-known for its great range of colors and varied crystal forms and habits. It is an immensely popular mineral among collectors. Barite is easily identifiable by its heavy weight since most similar minerals are much lighter. Barite often replaces other minerals, and may even replace organic materials such as wood, shells, and fossils. It sometimes forms tufaceous mounds from the deposition of hot, barium-rich springs.
Purple Fluorite is a calcium mineral. Fluorite is colorless and impurities of hydrocarbons produce a wide variety of colors including multicolored and banded. Rainbow Fluorite specimens display stunning multicolored bands that always seem to find a place in collections.
