Description:A striking and sculptural intergrown pair of large "roses" of sand-included barite blades. This is a classic Oklahoma barite "rose" from this obscure Cleveland County locale, known for exceptional specimens. The roses from here are much larger, than most from nearby localties. This fine cluster was formed in the Permian-aged Garber Sandstone. Oxidized sand grains are included in the barite crystal structure with colorful effect. Very choice and aesthetic 360-degree pristine material with multiple display views. These are the Oklahoma State Rock. Classic barite from the Joe Lobell Collection. Joe is a well-known retired dealer and field collector of Oklahoma and Texas material. The quality on this one is over the top and specimens from here are rarely on the market.
