A fine specimen of this rare Barium Calcium Carbonate from the well known Fallowfield Mine, the type locality. The Alstonite specimen displays many spiky pyramidal crystals to 1cm.

The Alstonite has formed around a thin band of mixed Sphalerite and Pyrite apparent on the underside of the specimen.
