This barium/calcium carbonite is neither Baryte nor is truly a different species, though this is often mislabeled or confused. The mineral is color-challenged, to be sure, but this piece is overall as aesthetic as you can ask for, and is a good size and quality for the crystallization. Rare old material, and one of the harder carbonates to acquire.
