Barite - Classic locale
Pohla Mine, Schwarzenberg District
6.1 x 4 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
A very attractive Pohla Barite showing the recognizable form of a chisel-tip termination and gemmy golden tops. The very glassy prisms also show the dark inclusions in the lower sections that give a nice contrast. The tips are fully transparent and the main crystal is doubly terminated. Displays well, this looks in good condition but is not perfect (very few are when examined closely) this has some edge chipping seen with magnification that also helps keep the price low. While not for perfectionists it is still a pretty example from a famed German locality and affordable.
A venerable German classic- this matrix plate hosts several sharp gem clear Barites to 2 CM. In very good condition, the matrix has some minor Fluorite and Pyrite but is mostly composed of sparkling Quartz. Displays well as is or could be trimmed to make several fine miniatures. Previous dealer labels included (with 500.00$ price tag).
