- Chalcedony ps. after Barite
- Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 6.6 x 3.7 cm
- Ait Ourir, High Atlas Mnts., Morocco
This gorgeous, translucent specimen features two, tabular crystals, to 6.6 cm in length, of pure white chalcedony replacing earlier crystals of barite. The vertical crystal is translucent and both exhibit a silky luster. In person, it is just so much more subtle in the aesthetics... really, a unique specimen! It is complete all around, and on both sides. A layer of gel-like bubbles of clear chalcedony coat the larger pseudomorph, as well, for a bit of added drama.
