A perfectly formed fan of long , slender Baryte crystals forms an elegant and unusual small cabinet specimen from the Hammam-Zriba mine by Zriba-Village in Zaghouan Governorate, Tunisia.  From one side, all crystals radiate out from a common origin.  The crystals are snow white grading to ever increasingly burnt apricot orange towards their terminations.  The opposite side is more complex, with several narrower fans, some entirely white and some completely tinted pale apricot.  The specimen has no matrix and is a most attractive specimen from this zinc-lead-fluorspar-baryte mine.
