Baryte, Jamesonite
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 5.3 x 4.2 cm
Baia Mare (Nagybanya), Maramures Co., Romania
A cluster of lustrous, sharp, bladed Baryte crystals, one one side richly included with jamesonite, giving the crystals a smoky color. The cluster is complete all around, with just a bit of contact on the bottom and only very trivial damage elsewhere for such a delicate cluster. It is from the Jan Buma collection, noted for such pieces from this locality (though without a label to that effect). 6.8 x 5.3 x 4.2cm
