Baryte and Malachite
Shangulowe Mine, Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of Congo
Miniature, 4.7 x 4.3 x 2.0 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda

Unusual for the inclusions and association, these Barytes came out in the mid 1990s. Perched on a bit of matrix is a cluster of tabular, glassy, gemmy, pastel green Baryte crystals, to 2.5 cm across. Naturally, with Baryte there is almost always a little bit of cleavage, but it is minimal here. Excellent condition and aesthetics.
