The highlight of this matrix Baryte is the impression of a smaller Baryte phantom one sees when looking through the display face of the main crystal. The label notes the yellow traces are due to strontium (??). On the back side, it is evident that there is the hollow remnant of a negative crystal of Baryte. Very cool! The main crystal is glassy, has great luster and measures nearly 2.5 cm in length.
