Blagill Mine, Nent Valley, Alston Moor District, North Pennines, North and Western Region (Cumberland), Cumbria, England, UK
Small Cabinet, 8.6 x 7.7 x 3.7 cm
A fine specimen of bladed barytocalcite from the Type Locality- the only mine in the world where barytocalcite has been mined as an ore. This is a large specimen with unusually large and isolated crystals, shooting up in every direction on the matrix. The grayish-white blades have a matte luster. Ex. Richard Barstow Collection, a very well-known English dealer and collector, who personally collected this piece.
