Baryte

Cerro, Perý - 8.5x3.5x7 cm

 

 

This isolated group of Barite crystals represents an astonishing example of perfection. The crystals are placed orthogonally with respect to the matrix, thus allowing to fully appreciate the incredible transparency and the deep amber color. In spite of a rather relevant thickness (more than 8 mm at some point), the light easily go across the group and make very simple to get a good picture with your camera! The geometry and shape are simply perfect: no damage at all! Acquired at the Roma Mineral Show in 2007.
