This small cabinet piece is a beautiful sculpture of tabular Barite crystals in a striking golden yellow color, and a very exciting infusion with a brown matrix.  The lustrous Barite crystals display a very rich color and perfectly terminated in such an awesome grouping.  The largest gemmy Barite is measuring 2.6cm x 1.8cm!  This very aesthetic, top shelf piece is from a small pocket find in May 2019.
