Strontianite, Baryte
Dreislar Mine, Dreislar, Winterberg, Sauerland, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 4.7 x 2.9 cm
A showy and excellent German specimen from a famous locality - the Dreislar Mine, Sauerland. A sharp, knife-edge bladed, complete all-around and pristine, parallel-growth baryte crystal cluster with lovely pink highlights has sharp, lustrous and colorless strontianite crystals aesthetically scattered on the front and back. Brassy chalcopyrite crystals nicely accent this fine piece. Ex. Wilhelm Leithauser Collection.
