This specimen of barite is from a very small but well-known find at Rosh Pinah, Namibia. There are very few specimens from this find around - in fact, you just do not see them on the market. The phantomed crystals have a pretty golden color and high luster, and measure to around 1.5 cm. This specimen does have moderate damage, but the center part of the display face is in good shape. A VERY rare barite specimen! 7.4 x 6.6 x 4.5cm
