A colorful miniature specimen from the Les Dalles Mine in Morocco featuring aggregates of gemmy Cerussite crystals aesthetically nestled on a matrix of Baryte (Barite). The small Cerussite crystals are implanted on botryoidal Maganese oxide, giving it a contrasting black color. Flattened tabular Barite crystals with pointed ends beautifully formed as perfect rosettes, impressive. The gem quality, naturally faceted Cerussite crystals displays a striking gold fluorescence under UV lighting 365 nm. The color of the Barite is a very saturated hot pink, so stunning! Comes with a high quality acrylic display box.
