Item Description

Rosettes of sparkly, off-white, bladed barite very aesthetically and richly cover the sculptural, sphalerite matrix on this excellent specimen from the historic and ancient Les Malines lead-zinc mine of Gard, France. Classic material, very minimally impacted by the light brusing in one spot. THis is hard to find for sale these days
