Barite w/Dolomite # TUC0813

This small cabinet piece is a beautiful sculpture of tabular, golden-yellow colored, Barite crystals, and a very exciting infusion with Dolomite matrix.

Yet another striking specimen from the Tucson 2008 show, that I am so happy to have listed here on my site! The lustrous Barite crystals display a very deep, rich color, and perfectly terminated in such an awesome grouping.

This very aesthetic, top shelf piece, is from a recent find.

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.
