Specimen # 100801
Mineral: Barite
Location: Xiefang Mine, Ruijin Co., Jianxi Province, China
Size: 5.1 x 4.4 x 1.7 cm


This piece features a beautiful deep golden barite crystal, 1.7 cm, surrounded by smaller glistening barites on quartz. The main barite crystal exhibits a super phantom. In excellent condition, with magnification one can see extremely minor chipping on the lower edge of the main crystal (the upper edge it’s growth patterns or possibly tiny contacts) and there is some chipping on lesser crystals on the piece. This is a very fine piece for this find – great proportions, and super quality for one of these.
