Baryte, Pyrite
Dreislar Mine, Dreislar, Winterberg, Sauerland, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 4.4 x 2.2 cm
Lustrous, snow-white, tabular blades of baryte beautifully accented by tiny pyrite crystals from the famous Dreislar Mine of Germany. The aesthetic, reticulated pattern of the baryte blades is very reminiscent of fine cerussites from Tsumeb or the Flux Mine. This showy specimen is very robust and impressive for the style.
