An infrequently seen Baryte from the mines at Wanlockhead in Dumfries and Galloway (formerly Dumfriesshire), Scotland.  A core of small but well crystallised Quartz crystals is half coated with pure snowy-white Baryte crystals, each typically to about 5 mm long.  A little pinkish-cream Calcite is also present. A really nice example of well crystallised Baryte from Wanlockhead.
