Very nice hand-sized specimen of barite from this famous Romanian locality that is now closed and flooded. The barite crystals have a greyish blue color with some hint of slightly darker grey edges. The crystals are primarily one-third to one-half inches on edge. There is little damage on the specimen outside of typical edge contacting/cleaving. Overall, this is a very nice, quality Romanian barite. $150 plus shipping.
