Baryte with Calcite
Muscadroxius-Genna Tres Montis Mine, Italy
Muscadroxius-Genna Tres Montis Mine, Silius, Cagliari Province, Sardinia, Italy
An absolutely superb baryte with calcite from the Muscadroxius-Genn Tres Montis Mine, Silius, Cagliari Province, Sardinia, Italy! This specimen features gemmy, elongated baryte crystals of an amber color, some of which are doubly-terminated, grown together with calcite crystals on a bit of matrix. The specimen is crystallized all around, the only point of contact being on the underside. The arrangement is highly aesthetic and the specimen displays well from multiple angles. Several broken crystals on the backside, but it does not detract at all from the overall aesthetics of the piece. Comes with a custom acrylic base.
