    Description

    Baryte
    Meikle Mine
    Bootstrap District
    Elko Co
    Nevada, USA
    8.66 x 7.01 x 3.39 inches (22.00 x 17.80 x 8.60 cm)


    Although the label indicates this very large Baryte specimen came from Frizington Mine in England, it matches up in all particulars with Baryte from the Meikle Mine in Nevada. A nice example of a Meikle Baryte, it features lots of thick honey colored wafers up to 1.1 inches (3.0 cm) on edge liberally covering the upper surface of a typical limonitic Gossan matrix. There are a few broken areas at one end of the piece; otherwise, it is in excellent condition exhibiting great luster, form and transparency.
    Offered at no reserve.

    Provenance: Western Minerals [Hoppel #D1759]

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


    Estimate: $2,000 - up.
