The aesthetics of this miniature specimen are off the chart!! It is literally a high-end ring material! This phenomenal piece features blades of peachy colored Baryte (Barite) crystals paired with honey-yellow gems of Cerussite “studded” on the sides. Mined from the Les Dalles Mine in Morocco, the flattened tabular Barite crystals with pointed ends aesthetically formed as a perfect rosette resembling a seashell and contain phantom growths, so stunning! The well-formed, gem quality Cerussite crystals are so abundant that they covered most of the surface on the back of the piece and they display a gold fluorescence under UV lighting 365nm, magnificent! Comes with a high quality acrylic display box.
