Meikle Mine is best known for the incredible bright platey yellow barites. This specimen is as much a calcite as a barite specimen. The calcites are water clearand up to 2.5cm. They have a very soft yellow tint. One calcite is tipped. The barites provide a lovely undertone of a deeper yellow. A few broken xls as pictured.
