Tongren Mine, Wanshan District, Tongren Prefecture, Guizhou Province, China
Small Cabinet, 9.1 x 5.4 x 3.7 cm
Check out this glowing, GOLDEN, glassy crystal of Baryte from the mine known for its cinnabar specimens, not Barytes! This 2.8-cm crystal (with smaller ones nearby) has the look of a top-quality anglesite. The color is due to minute traces of orpiment within, I believe. New find! This piece is exquisite and hosts a crystal the quality of cut glass.
