The only mineral species reported from the ore deposit at Saint-Georges-les-Bains at Tournon-sur-Rhône in south-eastern France is Baryte, where it is known to form a variety of habits and adopt many variations in colour.  This miniature is a splendid example of thick tabular rhombic crystals with opaque creamy tan edges and transparent to translucent prisms and prism faces. These contain beautifully coloured zones in many shades of cream, white and grey, while punctuated with a fabulous rhombohedral band of teal blue.  A delightful specimen from Saint-Georges-les-Bains in France.
