Superb quality golden gem barite crystals are perched on yellow calcite crystal matrix in this choice specimen from last year's dig at the classic Elk Creek locale in Meade County, South Dakota. We were fortunate to help mine and prepare some of the best specimens we have seen yet from this "top 50" classic American mineral locale this past year. This fine example has wonderful aesthetics and sits perfectly for display. The barite crystals are almost like faceted gemstones, with superb clarity and sharp, lustrous faces. Jeff Scovil photo.
