Baryte on Calcite

ID: CC19906
Long tabular transparent Baryte crystals with horizontal terminations are richly scattered over an undulating vuggy Calcite matrix coated with 1 to 2 mm curved blades of Calcite.  This attractive specimen is from the Příbram mining district in the Czech Republic.  The base reveals a buttery-cream Calcite matrix containing remnant epimorphs of a broad, yet narrow, earlier mineral; these cavities measure up to 3 cm wide by 2 mm broad and extend deep within the matrix.  The Baryte crystals are beautifully terminated; typically up to 1.5 cm long and occasionally have pale lemon tips.
