Baryte, Calcite
Meikle Mine, Bootstrap District, Elko Co., Nevada, USA
Cabinet, 9.9 x 9.4 x 4.4 cm
A lone golden baryte crystal, measuring 5 cm, on a bed of platy calcite, from the Meikle Mine. That strange tip is a completely natural termination, NOT damage, just oddly formed. The baryte is a full centimeter thick. It has fine luster.
