Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 4.2 x 2.5 cm
Meikle Mine, Bootstrap Distict, Elko County, Nevada, USA
Ex. Herb Obodda
The Meikle Mine is famous for its superb, tabular golden Barytes. The crystals here are sharp, gemmy, glassy, and in select condition, with the largest being 2.2 cm on edge! Like Dioptases, these show better when upright and visible, and that is certainly the case here. This is a competition-level small cabinet specimen, with the finest, gemmiest, and most lustrous Meikle Mine Baryte crystals that you can ask for! It is from the great find of the late 1990s. Better even, in person.
