Description

    Baryte
    Tur? Mine (Ghezuri Mine), Tur?, Negre?ti-Oa?
    Oa? Mts, Satu Mare
    Satu Mare Co.
    Romania

    The main Baryte here takes the form of a "flower" of colorless, thin blades arranged in fan-shaped groups rising from the top of the Gossan matrix. A secondary group is off to one side, and numerous smaller blades festoon the upper surface of the matrix. The luster and perfection of form are nothing short of stupendous. Operated since medieval times, the locality only began using modern style mining techniques in 1973. This specimen is in pristine condition and would add some depth to any collection.
    Offered at no reserve.

    Provenance: Western Minerals [Hoppel #D2071]

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]


    Estimate: $1,000 - up.
