I was in Saint Marie aux Mines this weekend and ask a few people on the origin of this baryte. They all agreed that it is likely from Chavaniac-Lafayette in the Haute-Loire Department in France.

Incredible, that the locality of such an (assumedly) distinctive specimen of a very common mineral can't be answered by dozens of experienced and educated collectors :-(
