An excellent group of pale honey-tan to colourless Baryte as bladed crystals to 5 cm in a bed of sucrosic Calcite crystals on pale green and pink marl.  From the exposure high in the cliff face of Peak Hill, which forms a vertical cliff along the sea coast at Sidmouth in Devon, England. The Baryte crystals are in parallel growth and grade from dark honey-tan at their base towards near-colourless Baryte towards their terminations.  A lovely modern classic from Sidmouth in Devon.
