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.

A lustrous strongly color zoned baryte with some internal crazing. Nicely terminated and lying flat upon the underlying quartz. Under the right lighting the zoned area can be seen as tiny marcasites sparkling in the zone. Self-collected about 10 years ago.

I forgot my Shangulowe barites;

I have 2 specimen, purchased both this year from Belgium collectors/vendor.



330D.JPG
 Mineral: Baryte with Malachite
 Locality:
Shangulowé Mine, Kambove District, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga (Shaba), Congo DR (Zaire)
 Description:
This specimen is about 6 cm long, 5 cm high and 4 cm wide. I purchased it recently (2018) in Liege, Belgium, at the international exhibition. I bought the specimen from a Belgium vendor who said that he lived in Congo and mined a lot of specimen himself. He had about 10 of these barites but I particularly bought this one as it was the only specimen with intrinsic green, transparent barite crystals. All the other specimen only showed a very slight mint-greenish color. The individual crystals are about 3 cm in size.

326L.JPG
 Mineral: Baryte with Malachite
 Locality:
Shangulowé Mine, Kambove District, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga (Shaba), Congo DR (Zaire)
 Description:
This specimen is a different specimen than the other 3 photo's which are all 3 from the same specimen. I bought this specimen in 2018 from a Belgium vendor, on an auction. You see a close-up from one of the crystals. This crystal is about 3.5 cm long, and has a pale mint-green color as can be seen. It also contains some Malachite.

330M.JPG
 Mineral: Baryte with Malachite
 Locality:
Shangulowé Mine, Kambove District, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga (Shaba), Congo DR (Zaire)
 Description:
Photo's 330 M, P and D are all from the same specimen. The barite crystals are intrinsic green and transparent due to the presence of nano-size Malachite in these crystals. The field of view of this photo is 4 cm.
