255-TLVBaryte

Aurangabad District, Maharashtra, India

Dimensions: 2.4 cm x 1.4 cm x 1.3 cm

Very distinctive baryte sceptre with a transparent blue core and contrasting white cap.

It would seem that only a handful of these were ever found in the countryside between the cities of Aurangabad and Jalna, although a more precise locality is hard to track down.
