Baryte

ID: CC2781

A Baryte specimen displaying one of the two classic crystal forms from the Wet Grooves Mine, Askrigg, England. This particular specimen came out of this long disused mine in 1980. Tabular Baryte crystals measuring to 4.2cm form an open cluster with a pyramid aspect to them. A typical creamy colour is seen to the crystals from opaque to translucent at the terminations. An excellent specimen from this early find.
