Large, thick, deep root-beer colored Baryte crystal to 6cm. The crystal is terminated and is 1.5cm wide at the base and tapers to a 3mm point. An interesting feature is the oscillatory growth paterns on the prism faces. Most of these specimens have this feature as shown by some curved striations and rounded growth patterns. It lies flat on golden Calcite matrix with crystals to 8mm. Another splendid piece, which sits flat without aid, displays well with exceptional luster and no damage!! This is an exceptional specimen at this price.
