Miniature, 4.5 x 3.3 x 2.8 cm
Huanuco Department, Peru
These relatively new Peruvian Barytes are just so exquisite! Incredibly gemmy and the best ones (as in this update) show beautiful form. This one is just much better in person; a complex cluster of dozens of gemmy, window-pane Baryte crystals growing every which way, on a sparing matrix. It consists almost entirely of stacked-up glassy crystals! A very rich specimen from this find. 4.5 x 3.3 x 2.8 cm
