This locality has produced a diverse field of Baryte. This is one of the most unusual with long and thick bladed crystals. They are a bit like Northumberland, England Barytes in that the color and forms are a little alike. The better side shows light blue translucent crystals while the flip side is more opaque and tan. There is some manganese oxide spots on the opaque sides. Each crystal is pristine and terminated perfectly. Overall a very nice specimen, just unusual.
