A cluster of translucent, light golden-yellow barite blades hosts numerous, deep green malachite balls. The largest barite is 2.9 cm, while the malachites top out a just a few mm diameter. The barites are, in some areas, included with sandy matrix, and in others, a bit rough. Not the prettiest barite or malachite, bur highly representative of this material and locality.
