Save for India, you don't often see one mineral coating another in such an aesthetic manner (the Fluorites on Stibnite from Thailand come to mind). The delicate Barytes are very well-crystallized, have a pleasant yellow color, and they completely cover the Stibnite. This thumb has a lot going for it.
