new year 2021
Gemmy, very sharp amber color Barites rise from the bed of small Calcite crystals covering the face of this matrix. From the classic Elk Creek locality these Barites are distinctive and unlike any others worldwide. This locality has been sporadically productive for decades and these specimens are one of the best values in esthetic USA minerals.
