Barite on Calcite - USA classic locale
Stoneham, Weld County
Colorado, United States
5.5 x 3.4 x 2.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $350


A super esthetic older piece from finds made more than 50 years ago (predating the famed Lees pocket). This is in flawless condition the cluster of Barites has fine steel blue color and contrasts with a yellowish Calcite matrix. In addition to the nice arrangement some of the Barite faces show a very unusual etching pattern seen in some photos here. Lots of visual impact for the size, the color is a bit richer than the more recent finds, all in all far better than "above average", an excellent old time Colorado specimen.
