Santa Lucia mine, Fluminimaggiore, Carbonia-Iglesias, Cerdeña, Italy

The baryte specimens of this Italian mine, which finished its work in the 80's, are considered among the best European classics for the species. This specimen presents a rich group of tabular crystals, with sharp edges and faces, excellent transparence and a superb toasted honey color. It emphasizes among them a crystal of more than 5 cm. Nowadays it is very difficult to find these samples with this quality. An European classic.
