Description
Esthetic, sharp green and glassy Barites are perched on a matrix along with some small zones of Malachite in an attractive specimen. From the famous finds of the 1980-90's this is a very colorful Barite with several nice angles for display. In very good condition, there is a little minor chipping mostly on the backside and not noticable without magnification. A good value, these have become quite expensive and few are this attractive.
