RM399   Baryte

Cerro Salomón, Minas de Riotinto, Huelva, Andalucía, Spain

Druse of very sharp baryte crystals showing developed and striated prismatic faces, truncated by pinacoids. The crystals are translucent, and color varies between colorless to yellowish. Excellent brilliance. Similar specimens were classified, many years ago, as hokutolite (a lead-rich baryte variety) but further analysis showed that there was only a minor lead content.

Size: 7,0 x 4,5 x 3,2 cm.
Main crystal: 10 x 7 mm.
