RM989   Barite with calcite

Moscona mine, Villabona area, Solís, Corvera de Asturias, Asturias, Spain

These specimens have given more than a headache. They have sometimes been cited as celestine from Moscona mine. This specimen shows a group of barite prismatic crystals very rich in faces, with the combination of various orthorhombic prisms and pinacoids. Transparency is excellent and with an amazing brilliance. They are disposed in a matrix with white crystals of calcite. Very few specimens in collections.
