Baryte

rose - #48540
Locality
near Norman, Cleveland Co., Oklahoma, United States 
Formula
BaSO4 
Availability
Sold
Size
14 x 8 x 7 cm - Cabinet 

Nice set of brick red rose Baryte crystals. The laregest "rose" is 7cm across. The place is closed to collecting.

This occurence is one of the more unique localities for the oddities of mineral world. Here barium mineralization penetrated the Permian Garber Sandstone along fractures sets and formed rose-like clusters of Baryte (Barite) crystals. Individual crystals form saucer shaped crystals with sand inclucions from the the Graber Sandstone. Trace Hematite imparts the red coloration. This specimen is from Dr. David London's collection, who wrote a thorough article on this occurence in the July/August 2008 issue of the Mineralogical Record.
