What are your favourite localities for BARYTE? My favourites are:
- Clara Mine, Oberwolfach, Black Forest, Baden-Württemberg, Germany
- Frizington, West Cumberland Iron Field, Cumbria, England, UK
- Cerro Warihuyn, Miraflores, Huamalíes Province, Huánuco Department, Peru
- Xiefang Mine, Ruijin Co., Ganzhou Prefecture, Jiangxi Province, China
- Meikle Mine, Goldstrike Mines, Bootstrap District, Elko Co., Nevada, USA

When I started this thread 3 years ago I mentioned Cerro Warihuyn as one of my favourites, but at that time I didn't have a baryte from there. Now is the time to add that specimen here - I hope this thread will continue :-)

Regards
Tobi

Thought I might share another of my very many Indiana barytes.

This 15 cm x 7 cm example collected 16 years ago in Monroe County has an oval 9 cm x 4.5 cm cavity.
Aesthetically placed about in the center of the druzy quartz cavity is this 3.3 cm x 2.7 cm baryte. The "sides" are free while the "top and bottom" of the crystal contact the edges of the cavity as can be seen.
Thus the baryte forms a neat bridge across the cavity.
