Barite (Barytes) - dark blue
Paga mine, Cartersville District, Bartow County
4.8 x 3.1 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
Late Summer 2018
A deep blue chisel-tip Barite from the now classic Georgia (USA) locale at Cartersville. The deep "royal blue" color was the most desirable but very uncommon at this locale. This is a choice miniature example in fine condition, with good transparency, luster and very sharp terminations. Not often available anymore, a good Georgia Blue is a welcome addition for any suite of Barite and especially for a Southeastern USA collection.
