HOLD Barite with Calcite included by Hematite
stock #HOLD AX-2-029
Frizington, West Cumberland Iron Field
Cumbria, England
8.8 x 6.3 x 5.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $1200


Even if you have seen a lot of great classic English Barites, this one is something special! The Barite blades are sharp, glassy to 6 CM in size, with a pale blue-grey color and partly included by dark red hematite. Just that is enough for a fine collection, but what makes this exceptional is the bright gem clear Calcites that are also partly included by hematite encrusting selective faces of the Barite. Very esthetic, the main crystals are in perfect condition but some edge and base damage (from removal) is noted, it will not be noticed from most logical display angles.
