Description
Hundreds of small tabular, bright, golden Barite crystals on a matrix. Small but aesthetic little specimen that sits nicely on its own, displaying at a desirable angle.Ex. Don Stockton Collection with his label and also the previous label (simply handwritten on card) displaying the original sale price of only $3 – most likely purchased in New Zealand in the 1970’s.Although the label says Dundas, Tasmania, it is most likely from the nearby Rosebery area, known for producing these golden baryte specimens in the 1970’s.
