Baryte on Calcite

$500.00   €427  £390.00 approx.  

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

ID: CC15113
Beautifully crystallised Baryte from Peak Hill at the seaside town of Sidmouth in Devon has become a modern classic.  The occurrence is high in the sea cliffs which intersect Peak Hill and occasional rock falls, following stormy weather, make the Baryte veins and pods accessible to collectors.  This wonderful specimen has fanned stacks of broad Baryte blades of between 2.5 and 3.7 cm long, ranging from translucent to ice-clear golden-tan with a brilliant glassy lustre.  The Baryte sits on hundreds of tiny rounded Calcite crystals, grading from colourless through milky-white to pale pink.  A terrific and quite gemmy Sidmouth Baryte which fluoresces bright straw-yellow under LWUV.
