BARITE CRYSTAL STACK
A stunning cluster of a geometrically shaped Barite Crystal Stack. There is no matrix on this piece, just pure, well formed crystals which make it an ideal addition to a collection. Also known as Baryte, it is named after the Greek word for ‘weight’ which is considerable for a non-metallic material. A very nice specimen 🙂 and not so easy to find lately.
5.5cm x 2.2cm x 4.3cm(main crystal only), 342g.
Xian Hualin Mine, Jiangxi, China.
