Mineral Specimen #5069    Baricite

Big Fish River, Dawson Mining District, Yukon, Canada

Type Location

Ex. Royal Ontario Museum, Ex. Steve Pullman

(Mg,Fe)3(PO4)2·8H2O

This is a very rare phosphate found in very few places world wide with the only available specimens coming from the Dawson Creek area. The Baricite is gray/blue in color and forms layered, tabular, lamellar crystals which is a bit unusual for a phosphate. Please note: this material is a bit delicate and there is a possibility it could break along the crack in the specimen. Since the resulting specimens would still be worth the price of the specimen, no refund will be given if the specimen does separate in transit. I have seen pieces much smaller than this sold for quite high prices. Of course, utmost care will be taken in wrapping the specimen. There probably will not be problem since it has already been moved from the Yukon to Toronto to Nevada to Missouri to Illinois to Michigan and possibly a few other places along the way.

Condition: Fairly Good

Flaws: There is a crack in the specimen which is visible in the photos.
