- Baryte on Dolomite
- Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 7.0 x 4.5 cm
- Cumberland, England
- Ex. Seaman Mineralogical Museum
Aesthetically emplaced on a matrix of drusy, tan colored dolomite are several discrete, glassy and gemmy, Baryte crystals to 4.1 cm in length. The Baryte crystals, some of which are doubly terminated, are nearly colorless but have some pizzazz as they are included with a fair amount of internal hematite inclusions. Very showy! The contrast on this piece is really nice, and it is an excellent representative specimen of this old classic locale and association from the 1800s or early 1900s. It has an old label from the Seaman Museum in Houghton, Michigan.
