Barite on Stibnite
Dahegou Mine, Lushi County, Sanmenxia Prefecture
10.9 x 1.4 x 1.4 CM (cabinet)
Unusual and neat association. A Stibnite crystal with some bends and a hackly termination has two white transparent Barite crystals on the middle section. The Barites have some milky faces and others that are very clear so the underlying Stibnite can be seen through the crystals. From finds in 2005 we have not seen more of this type since that era.
