Congratulations Niels.

Thanks for your comments guys! I'm glad you enjoy them.

Time for a new update, once more from the famous Grube Clara in the Black Forest in Germany. I find it fascinating how many different colours, forms, habits and sizes of baryte crystals have been found there over the years, due to the many successive phases of geological activity at this locality.



NCB-701-baryte-Grube-Clara-Schwarzwald-Germany.jpg
 Mineral: Baryte
 Locality:
Clara Mine, Rankach Valley, Oberwolfach, Wolfach, Black Forest, Baden-Württemberg, Germany
 Dimensions: 6,5 x 5,5 x 4,0 cm
 Description:
Translucent baryte crystals with a subtle shade of pink, many of which are double terminated.

Rather unusual radiating formation of slender pink 'Meißelspat' baryte crystals, partly covered by a white outer layer. Amongst the radial baryte crystals are some double ended ones that formed in a different orientation.
