Specimen # 100679
Mineral: Barite
Location: Barite, Sidi Lahcen Mine, Djebel Ouichane, Nador, Morocco
Size: 12.3 x 8.8 x 8.4 cm


Exquisite sprays of sharp blue barite crystals project up into the void of a pocket lined with sparkling calcite crystals. The blue colour on the main group is exceptional. In remarkable excellent condition – no damage to any of the main central barites – they are pristine! There is a missing crystal tip at the left, a horizontal crystal along the matrix – displayed as I would display this piece (the first photo) that tip faces back and is out of sight. Lots of bright lustre, giving lots of brilliant sparkle at various angles.

A wonderful dramatic cabinet specimen of blue barite.
