Huanuco Department, Peru
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.3 x 2.8 cm
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
