These are arguably the finest golden Baryte crystals from Colorado. The best of these specimens show a very rich golden color and excellent gem quality crystals. This piece comprises dozens of gem/gemmy, sharp, lustrous, rich golden color Barytes on gossan matrix. This mine is long defunct and will never produce these amazing Barytes ever again. This specimen came to Richard from noted Colorado collector, George Robertson, and was mined in 1959. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
