Muli Mine, Mianyan,Ebian
13.5x9.5 CM (cabinet)
A mound of lusterous barites (most of which are gemmy with phantoms) with a single, larger 3.5 CM crystal at the top. This mine has not produced anything but very tiny crystals for the past 3 years and the larger crystals when in good condition (which is rare) are now very hard to find. The architecture of this piece is very attractive and the damage is minimal, most is on the periphery and the rest is not at all distracting, the main crystals are fine.
