HOLD Barite (fine, gemmy) w. Quartz
Jinkouhe town, Ebian
Sichuan Province, China
12 x 7.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $550


An exceptional and pristine Barite. The locality at Jinkouhe was incredibly productive about 5 years ago, with lots of Barites coming out. Most were unimpressive or badly damaged but a few were world class. This piece is undamaged and has 2 main Barites (3.7 and 7.2 CM) with different habits but both with glass-like transparency. Despite being a "white on white" mineral this does display strongly and the delicate form is very fine.
