This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC13481
A good sized and excellent cabinet specimen of greenish-grey Baryte crystals richly coating the top surface of a flat bed of milky Quartz.  From Ale and Cakes mine at Carharrack in Gwennap parish, Cornwall, the Baryte forms crystals of up to 1.8 cm long which create a pleasingly jumbled layer over the Quartz. A striking feature of this specimen is the brilliant lustre of the Baryte crystals, so reflective that they appear almost silver.  A super example from the historic Ale and Cakes mine.
