Dal'negorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District
Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region
6.88 x 6.65 x 3.93 inches (17.5 x 16.9 x 10 cm)
This massive piece of Baryte with Quartz is essentially a giant layered "bowl" with several minerals in a unique association. In addition to the rare circular shape, this specimen - collected some 20 years ago - features druzy Quartz crystals as well as even "micro" Pyrite crystals with the Baryte resulting in a really unusual assemblage from Dal'negorsk in Russia which, of course, is a very well-known locality to serious mineral collectors. This is a truly amazing piece that comes from a classic place in a very remote region.
