Quartz on Barite (Sugar Bowl pocket)
Murray mine, Sugarbowl pocket, Independance Mts. District, Elko Co.
Nevada, United States
3.6 x 3.1 x 1.9 CM (miniature)
price: $190
Early summer 2023

Bright and sparkling Quartz crystals have sugar-coated the front sides of Barite crystals. A distinctive find this was called the Sugar Bowl pocket. It was discovered almost 20 years ago, deep in the Murray Mine of the Elko gold mining region. As far as we know there was nothing else like these specimens ever found anyplace else in the USA. These are now only available from older collections. The front of the specimen is perfect, there are some side rub points and the back is the area of attachment. Pretty and bright.
