Sharp transparent Barite crystals rising like a chain of mountains above a sparkling landscape of tiny Barite crystals. Bright yellow-orange color with fine luster from the finds several decades ago at the Rock Candy Mine, British Colombia, Canada. Attractive cabinet sized specimen from the collection of John Marshall (his label is included). Close exam shows a few small rough edges on some crystals but most are quite perfect and sharp. For such a delicate, fragile mineral this is in amazing condition. An excellent example from this locale and a nice Barite from any place.
