Description

A very fine old time Greek classic from a now worked out locality. A group of barite crystals grown in a semi-spherical shape. The crystals are shiny to high glossy and reach an edge length of up to 3.3 cm. As you can see on the photos there is also some brown limonite on the crystals. No significant damage to report - the bottom was extracted from the rock! Should high gerangt on the basis of rarity!
