ID: CC13437
A group of translucent pale sky blue Baryte crystals forming very flat tabular blades with snow white terminations.  This is an unusual and scarce beast, unlike anything typically seen from this area of west Cumbria.  All the blades have a bright glassy lustre and a resinous appearance, with a pearlescent reflectance.  Patches on some of the crystals display a play of iridescent colours and the more this is studied, the more beautiful it appears.  This small cabinet specimen comes with an old W.W. Jefferis label; a Ralph A. Sutcliffe (Nelson, Lancashire) stock label and a Lindsay Greenbank Collection (No. LG.95) card label.
