Second crystal at bottom also large, and another slightly smaller crystal behind main crystal. Celadonite inclusions completely cover specimen, 4x3.5x2.5 cm. Excellent luster. Testing with XRD March 2019 confirmed it is barite. There is also barite from nearby localities in the Jalna area but they all have specific mines or digs. Not certain exactly where in Jalna this came from which is why the location is not more specific.
