9 x 6 x 1.5 inches
Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
Barite is somewhat abundant as a mineral species, but where have you seen a nice example from Brazil? This large cabinet sized specimen from Rio Grande do Sul features dozens of brilliant blue, sharp barite crystals on matrix. The crystals are blue, bladed, and lustrous, and make sharp contrast with the dark, earthy matrix. This part of Brazil produces several of the minerals you DON'T think about when "minerals of Brazil" comes into subject. The specimen is comparable in nature to some of the recent Moroccan barite, but its locality stretches beyond flavor of the week. A very substantial barite specimen for the serious collector.
