- Baryte on Quartz
- Jinkouhe Dist., Leshan, Sichuan, China
- Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 5.5 x 2.2 cm
- Ex. Ruben Avila
This is a choice cluster of Chinese baryte perched on gemmy quartz points, which for some reason Ruben had obtained in trade (presumably in Tucson) and kept on the side of his Mexican collection as a pretty piece. It is certainly a fine example for what it is, in the size range, and presented here with his Mexican collection because we obtained it at the same time (he did have some random worldwide stuff, that seemed to have been obtained just for fun, which we are not presenting here).
