Mineral Specimen #5492    Barite

Jebel Ouichane, Saganane (Beni Bou Ifrour), Nador, L'oriental Region, Morocco

Bladed Barite crystals which are bicolor being a light blue and a reddish color. The reddish color appears to be a surface deposit of iron oxides which is present always on the same side of the crystals (and a few of the edges). Because the Barite is translucent to transparent, the reddish color appears to rum through the crystals. The crystals have a high, glossy luster which appears to be partially aided by having been lighted treated with either an oil or silicone spray.

Condition: Good

Flaws: There are few broken edges.

6.4 x 6.6 x 5.7 cm
