Description

This blue baryte from Nador is much better then most other specimens from that locality. The crystals are not just lustrous and well colored, the transparency is very good. Something you can't find very often. The crystals are sharp terminated with the best clearity and a fine blue color. The contrast to the limonite-matrix is excellent. Only very minor damage, not invisible from the display-side.
