The core of this specimen is group of white, translucent to opaque barite blades. One blade, perpendicular to the main cluster, is mostly covered with opaque, tan siderite crystals clusters, these having interesting stepped growth. Additional siderite, plus small but bright galena crystals are also present. The matrix is mixed sulfides, mostly galena (by visual identification). The main barite cluster is contacted or cleaved across the top of the specimen, but I do not find this to be a distraction.
