Large Cabinet, 21.5 x 18.0 x 3.5 cm
This large crust is covered by small, sharp Baryte crystals on BOTH sides, indication that it was a ridge exposed in the pocket on both sides. However, on one side, the crystals are a light creamy-brown color, and on the other, they are tinted gray by inclusions of jamesonite! There are a few dings, but the piece is in good condition considering its size. From the Buma Collection, with label, mined in the 1980's. 21.5 X 18 x 3.5 cm
