Barite and Marcasite 
Bou Nahas Mine, Oumjrane Mining Area, Alnif, Alnif County, Tinghir Province, DrĂ¢a-Tafilalet, Morocco
Miniature - 3.7 x 3.4 x 3.1 cm (1.5 x 1.3 x 1.2 inches)
41 grams (0.09 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

An aesthetic cluster of colorless, glassy, opaque to transparent barite tabular crystals. A few small marcasite clusters, slightly iridescent, are scattered about. Many display angles possible (because the flat barites make good bottoms) without a stand but even more with a stand. A few small nicks are rubs present which is why this isn't a fifty dollar barite cluster.
