A freestanding light golden yellow barite crystal, translucent and very glassy. Yellow fluorescence; quite bright under longwave UV (second and last photos; brighter than the photos suggest) and weaker under shortwave UV. Accented with a cluster of pinkish, bladed barite. Incomplete on the back and base where removed from matrix, but otherwise free of damage. Sits as shown without needing additional support. A very nice cerussite crystal for the price.
