Baryte, Quartz
Jinkouhe, Ebian Co., Leshan Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Cabinet, 10.4 x 8.8 x 7.1 cm
This is a really impressive and large crystal of baryte rising off a matrix of quartz and smaller Barytes, with a strange distinction: both the large crystal (7 cm) and the small ones are clear through the center and frosted on the bevels to either side of the clear stripe in the center. The large crystal even has two golden sections at the outer extremities.
