Ex. Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences; William Vaux
An unusually robust single crystal of barite from this locality, with good gemminess and high luster. It has not been cleaned, to preserve the antique look. It is cleaved on the sides (one side bearing the Vaux label, though!), and has a little damage to the top-left termination portion. However, it displays well overall and has great brightness to it. From the noted collection of William S. Vaux
