A cellular, mid-grey matrix is completely overgrown with rounded blades of Barytocalcite coated with chalky-white Baryte to 1.5 cm.  The blades form a mound of divergent sprays, with no damage to any of the crystals.  An excellent example of this scarce barium species, and comes with a Gregory, Bottley and Lloyd label
