Barite

Regular price $4,800.00
SKU:11620
Locality: Meikle Mine, Bootstrap District, Elko Co., Nevada, USA
Dimensions: 7.5 x 23.5 x 10.5 cm

The Meikle gold mine near Elko, Nevada has produced the best barite crystals in the US, and some would say the best in the world. While large numbers of fine barite crystals came out during a ~10 year period from the 1990's to early 2000's, they are not currently being found and good examples have become somewhat scarce on the market. This is a very fine example with gemmy, golden-yellow crystals with great transparency, forming a cluster on matrix. An exceptional and very large cabinet-size barite specimen that draws the eye from across the room with it's lustrous and aesthetic crystals.
