I'm not sure but I think the covering sulfide on these baryte specimens from Lubin is marcasite, not pyrite.

Thank you for the time you have taken to analyze my post. I had the same doubt too and the reasons I think it's pyrite are :
I bought this specimen in SMAM two weeks ago from a polish dealer who was advertising as a new find from Lubin in 2018
I found some information on internet like this : https://www.mindat.org/article.php/2970/Crystal+days+-+Luban+Show+Poland+201

What do you think ? Do you know a way to be sure ? I'm a neophyte so I'll be pleased to receive more information.

Dany.

I think you already found the solution to the riddle: It seems to be new find with pyrite instead of marcasite. I didn't know that, but now you know that the information you got on this specimens is right, congratulations to a good specimen of a new find :-)
