Witherite, Calcite, Baryte, and more! North Yorkshire, England


England has some very interesting and famous fluorescent materials. Material from the Danby Level, Northside Mines, Whaw, Arkengarthdale, North Yorkshire, England, UK is a little more off the beaten bath. Here's a witherite, calcite, baryte from the local, with perhaps a little barytocalcite and hydrozincite as well. Witherite is cream/white, calcite red, baryte yellow/white, barytocalcite pink and hydrozincite blue (specs). Shown in SW, MW, LW, and natural. The witherite is also somewhat phosphorescent (not shown).
