From the classic California barite locality (where else can you collect barite along the seashore while you watch the dolphins and whales?) we have a specimen featuring translucent to opaque barite, with individual crystals reaching 4.2 cm. Moderate, whitish fluorescence under both shortwave and longwave UV. Although the site is still accessible for collecting, specimens of this quality are no longer being found. Displays nicely without needing a stand. No damage.
