Barite, Dolomite

Regular price $1,200.00
Locality: Frizington, West Cumberland Iron Field, Cumbria, England, UK
Dimensions: 7.5 x 8.0 x 7.0 cm

These British barites from Frizington have been considered classics for hundreds of years, and this specimen illustrates why that is. Lustrous yellow-blue crystals to 5 cm are perched on dolomite crystals, forming an aesthetic arrangement. Most of these came out in the 19th and early 20th Centuries and they are now rather hard to come by. This is a nice example in good condition and displays well.
