Barite on Dolomite and Rhodochrosite
stock #AX-12-503
Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
10.9 x 7.9 x 6.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $725
Dec 2018

A fine cabinet specimen that is far beyond the average Barite from Cerro Warihuyn. The Barite is a smoky golden color, very clear and mostly all transparent. The matrix is a mix of Dolomite and Rhodochrosite which adds a nice pink contrast. A few tiny dark Sulphide crystals are noted too, but they are minor in the composition. The free standing Barites are very fine for this important locality, 4.7 CM across with nice zoning. No damage to note except a small chip on the backside of the Barite that is not visible from any logical display angle. The presentation side is in perfect condition. Far better in person. This locale had produced lots of Barite and is world renown for them, this specimen is exceptional compared to the vast majority of the find.
Barite -window pane type

Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Ancash Department, Peru
7.8 x 4.7 x 4.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $450
Spring update

Transparent, sharp and lustrous Barites in rosette form on minimal matrix. Undamaged and with a light smoky color this has several excellent display angles with good impact. The digging at Cerro Warihuynan has been a major discovery of fine Barites. Even in the flood of good specimens, this piece is far better than typical, a very choice example with a price to quality value ratio that is hard to find these days.

Cerro Warihuyn - Miraflores, Huamalies Prov.
Huanuco Department, Peru
4.4 x 2.3 x 2.5 CM (miniature)

Spring 2017

Glass clear Barite blades in perfect condition sitting on crystallized pink Rhodochrosite. From the prolific finds at Cerro Warihuyn, which produced some of the best Barites found in decades- esthetic, attractive and very affordable. There are a lot of these on the market but this is well above the average miniature, way better in person. The locality is supposedly almost exhaused, which will be a great loss to the mineral world!

One of the best mineral bargains of the past few years is the Barites of Cerro Warihuyan. These are sharp, gemmy and attractive, excellent examples of the specie and very affordable. The matrix is a contrasting Rhodochrosite that presents the crystals well.

One of the best mineral bargains of the past few years is the Barites of Cerro Warihuyan. These are sharp, gemmy and attractive, excellent examples of the specie and very affordable.
