Baryte, Dolomite
Cerro Warihuyn (Huarihuyn), Miraflores, Huamalies Province, Huanuco Department, Peru
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 4.8 x 3.0 cm
Three absolutely water-clear, smoky baryte blades to 2.2 cm are beautifully attached to the top of a mounded, sculptural matrix covered with pastel-pink dolomite rhombs on this fine specimen from recent finds at Cerro Warihuyn, Peru. The barytes are pristine and have very interesting beveled edges. A rich sprinkling of marcasite microcrystals on the dolomite is a nice accent. Outstanding combination material from this locale, which is becoming a contemporary classic.
