South Cumberland Mine, Eskdale, North and Western Region (Cumberland), Cumbria, England, UK
Cabinet, 11.0 x 2.1 x 2.2 cm
A big, translucent, very large and unusual English Baryte crystal, mined in the late 1800's. It is translucent to transparent, with a pretty yellow-green color. There is a bit of edge wear and one clean one-cm cleave just below the termination on one side, but as you can see, the specimen presents wonderfully and is REALLY impressive. It is HIGHLY unusual in form, but beyond that looks very dramatic when displayed upright. 11 x 2.1 x 2.2 cm
