Miniature, 4.1 x 1.2 x 1.2 cm
This is just an utterly sensational old English Baryte - truly, it has the appearance of a gem crystal! It has wonderful golden color, and the faces alternate between glassy and silky. The interior is absolutely transparent. These can be quite large, but this one is in a "cute" mini size that is perfect for many collections.
