Here is a matrix specimen of barite from the renowned Elk Creek barite locality in South Dakota. There are dozens of crystals to 1", almost all with perfect, undamaged terminations, poking out of vugs in the calcite-covered chert matrix. The crystals are transparent and gem clear, in a rich honey golden color that contrasts well with the matrix. The luster is glassy, and the crystal faces are smooth, with crisply defined edges. Mined and prepared by Collector's Edge, this is an excellent piece from this American classic locality.
