Barite on Fluorite, Rock Candy Mine, Grand Forks, British Columbia, Canada 3.4 x 5 x 6.5 cm $400. Online 9/06. SOLD.
Buttery-yellow, tabular, semi-transparent barite crystals, to 2.7 cm on edge, perched on pastel purple and green fluorite. This is one of the nicest barites from this location I have acquired. Crystallized all the way around and a very aesthetic grouping. A couple of tiny edge chips along back of crystal on left. Acquired from Rochester Mineral Symposium 2010 from Bill Plavac of Niagara Fall, Ontario.
