Crystals of bi-colored Baryte (Barite) to nearly parallel growth interlinked to form this aesthetic cluster from Xiefang Mine of China. The tabular, spear-pointed Baryte crystals exhibit gemmy, translucent cores in an olive-brown/green color, contrasting sharply with ivory colored bands at the terminations. Unusual and sculptural!
