Barite #NEV01

Click on photos to enlarge

These golden Barites from the Carlin Trend (Nevada's largest Gold deposit!), in the Meikle Mine of Nevada, are world class specimens! I scooped up a few of them directly from the miner of these beauties at the Tucson 2006 Show, and I am pleased to list them here on my web site.

Found in high temperature, sulfurous pockets, which creates extreme conditions and are very dangerous to collect these superb crystals.

Loaded with many gemmy, tabular-rhombohedron, golden-yellow, to deep amber Barite crystals on matrix, this miniature really sparkles! The crystal faces are so glassy, making this is one very fine specimen!

PLEASE NOTE: All of the photographs are not to scale. Some are enlarged to give you an accurate and an in depth view of all the details for you to see. Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect. If a specimen has knowingly been repaired, I will always disclose this information to you.
