The color of this twinned pair of French barite crystals is a light golden yellow, with gray undertones, and the interiors are gemmy, with some fairly clear areas. The two crystals are sharply formed, and both are terminated, with 4 sides to the terminations and sharp chisel-tip terminations at the top. At first glance they resemble quartz crystals, but the high density gives them away as barite right away. The piece was mined in 2014 by a French collector who sold it to me at the St.-Marie aux Mines show.
