Miniature, 4.8 x 4.0 x 2.8 cm
A showy and aesthetic specimen of transparent Baryte blades jauntily perched on orange mimetite from the Bilbao Mine, Zacatecas, Mexico. A beautiful and uncommon combination piece, as Baryte is rare from the Bilbao Mine. I am told they came out in the 1950s. I have seen very few for sale, ever 4.8 x 4.0 x 2.8 cm
