Barite (Barytes) - dark blue
stock #18.1-431
Paga mine, Cartersville District, Bartow County
Georgia, United States
4.8 x 3.1 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
price: $220
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.

pre Tucson 2015 update

An American classic- Graves Mt Rutile, with a sharp, very lustrous crystal nicely exposed on matrix. No damage, but with the typical matrix contacts these all have. Some faces reflect ruby red highlights although overall this looks deep black. Better in person, a nice small cabinet sized piece that display very well.
Rutile

A big, doubly terminated crystal from Americas great Rutile locale, Graves Mt. This shows two distinctly different termination forms and has good luster. There are substantial contacts on the piece some with minor muscovite ( a common occurence here) in the faces, but the large size and unusual form are what makes this piece a good one.
