Baryte

ID: CC942

Excellently developed crystals of Baryte from the well known Ale and Cakes mine in Cornwall (part of the Great Consolidated group of mines). The Baryte forms light translucent green-grey thick bladed crystals to 2cm long. The Baryte has a high luster with many crystal faces reflecting the light, with crystals growing at different angles in a hedgehog like aggregate. Some of the crystals display parallel growth habits. The specimen has a label recording that it came from the 170 fathom level of the mine.
