These unusual barite specimens from the Linwood mine are unique because at first glance they look like cut topaz crystals. However, these crystals just happen to grow in a form that looks like a cut gemstone - they are 100% natural. Most of the good quality specimens came out of the mine several years ago, so most of what you'll see on the market is much lower quality material where the barite is gray and opaque. Finding specimens that have good color and transparency is quite difficult now, and that's why we get them whenever we can find them. 

This specimen has for main crystals with one large primary crystal. They all have perfect terminations and are glassy-clear with an amber tint. The primary crystal here is 6.2cm long and so clear you can see the matrix throught it. There is only a small amount of matrix material on the backside of the specimen. 

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
