This specimen consists of dozens of light blue, highly translucent to transparent and slightly divergent barite blades. Fine luster, which is not adequately captured in the photos. A few blades are missing terminations, but overall fine shape for the species and locality, especially at this price. These blue barites appeared on the market a few years ago but undamaged specimens offered at reasonable prices were never abundant. They are almost impossible to find now. Will display nicely with the correct stand.
