This fine baricite specimen hails from the type locality and famed iron formation-hosted phosphate mineral occurrence in the Yukon. Excellent, well-formed, blue, tabular lamellar crystals of baricite to 1.8cm exhibiting a pearly luster are associated with small, terminated quartz crystals within a milky white quartz vein (possibly associated with bobdownsite). Baricite is the magnesium analog of vivianite. Comes with the original type-written description/label.
