Two magnificent groups of bladed, opaque, snow-white Baryte forming two ball-like rosettes of approximately 8 x 9 cm and 6 x 6 cm diameter, from New Glencrieff mine, Wanlockhead, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.  The Baryte overgrows a base of lead-grey Galena, which forms a few cubic crystals at one side.  Lustrous and translucent nail-head Calcite crystals of about 3 mm diameter are richly scattered over many of the Baryte blades.  A superb Wanlockhead Baryte.
