Baryte, Dolomite
Dalmellington Mine, Frizington, West Cumberland Iron Field, North and Western Region (Cumberland), Cumbria, England, UK
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 4.8 x 4.3 cm
A beautiful, really unusual elongated cluster of barytes with serrated edges, most likely found during the late 1800s or early 1900s heyday of the northern English spar district. It is more brightly colorful than many such crystals, and preserved in pristine condition. From the Dr. Ed David collection, purchased in 1998 from another dealer.
