This excellent cluster of creamy-white Baryte crystals is from Wilson's Stope in Hilton mine, Scordale, Cumbria, and is an excellent representation of this hedgehog habit in miniature form.  All crystals have a most attractive glassy lustre and average around 1.5 cm tall by 0.8 cm wide at their bases.  The crystal habit is spear-like, forming a curved arch in the form of a gothic window, and each spike is built from multi-stacked spears in epitaxial alignment.  A fine miniature Baryte from Hilton mine.
