Baryte, Quartz
Xiefang Mine, Ruijin Co., Ganzhou Prefecture, Jiangxi Province, China
Cabinet, 12.9 x 10.4 x 7.5 cm
Gem-like, blocky to tabular, honey-brown baryte crystals to 1.6 are studded on the massive green fluorite matrix with a sparkling multitude of smaller baryte crystals on this fine cabinet specimen from finds in China a couple of years ago. Sadly, very few of these pretty specimens have come out, and one wonders if any more will.
