Baryte, Calcite
Sterling Mine, Stoneham, Weld Co., Colorado, USA
Miniature, 4.7 x 4.3 x 2.6 cm
An aesthetic cluster of parallel-growth, prismatic, grayish-blue baryte blades nicely set in sugary calcite from the 1989 finds at the Sterling Mine at Stoneham, Colorado. The crystals have excellent luster and translucency and classic chisel termations. The Sterling Mine project was one of the early and successful specimen mining projects undertaken by Bryan Lees of Collectors Edge. Ex. Wes Parker Collection. Excellent and choice material.
