Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

Content image: Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

This old time specimen from Baia Sprie, Romania is quite rare and unusual.

It comprises myriad sheaves of clear baryte arranged in fern-like stacks. Within the body of the individual crystals there are vivid red inclusions of realgar, and forming a partial crust over is ochre yellow klebelsbergite, also one or two tiny sprays of stibnite.

Sadly storage and atmospheric conditions have not been kind to this piece and it is rapidly disintegrating.

So say hello and wave goodbye as this little gem is consigned to history.
