This is one of the more unique Blue Baryte specimens we've seen, and it has incredible aestehtics which resemble a snail, so we refer to it as the "Snail Baryte". What we have is a mount of yellow-orange Limonite which is covered in small white barite crystals. Then, following the crest of the mound is a trail of Blue Baryte blades forming two clusters. The baryte blades are in remarkable condition with almost no damage. Good specimens of this material are becoming harder and harder to find because there has not been any more of it coming out of the mine since early 2016. 

This specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
