Mogshaw mine, a little south of the picturesque village of Ashford-in-the-Water and west of Bakewell, exploited an E-W trending vein with operation beginning in the 1700's.  This specimen of Baryte is a fabulous example of a rare habit in which tabular blades have developed in successive parallel arched arrays to form a fan-like structure and displaying equally well from either side.  The underlying Baryte has a light shy-blue cast, but a surface coating on one side of creamy orange and tan and on the opposite side, chocolate-tan with a powdery-cream frosting.  A great specimen.
