Here we have a spray of light sky-blue and translucent to transparent barite blades which rise up from a knob of matrix. 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. Except for the usual edge issues no damage is seen. Currently mounted to an acrylic base for display but easily dismounted if desired.
