Barite, Cavnic, Maramures, Romania miniature 4 x 4.5 x 5 cm $125. Online 10/03
A hollow mound of lustrous straw yellow barite crystals complete on all sides and well crystallized to all edges. The interior of the specimen is probably an epimorph but it is not clear after what previous species. It's possible that it was overgrown on a soluble matrix as well. In great condition. Mined c. 1970s from the 'good old days' of Maramures. Eric Petersen Collection.
