A larger specimen with two unique Barite crystals to 2.5cm each nicely set on the top of Calcite covered matrix. Both crystals show good clarity and excellent deep golden color and are nicely terminated with minor frosting on the tip.

This specimen sits perfectly without aid. The rest of the matrix is composed of rich honey colored Calcite crystals to 8mm in a large pocket about 2cm deep giving this specimen added dimension. Excellent, interesting specimen with no damage!!
