Barite with Marcasite pseudo Pyrrhotite


Availability: 1 in stock

I chose this specimen due to its overall geometry. Two distinct 3cm crystals of barite are cemented in symmetry by host rock and have rosettes of marcasite replacing pyrrhotite. I also like the concave form caused by solution etching of the back of one crystal.
