I've always been fond of the barites from the West Cumbrian (formerly Cumberland) Iron Orefield. At the height of mining in the area during the latter part of the 19th century, there were dozens of active mines, many of which produced specimens of barite, calcite, quartz, hematite, and other minerals. Unfortunately, it is difficult, if not impossible to determine which of the mines a specimen may have come from, so the given location is usually the name of one of the local villages, such as Frizington, Egremont, or Cleator Moor.
