OKP-675

Bottom

OKP-675    Barite     Victoria Mine, Cabezo de San Gines, El Estrecho de San Gines, Sierra Minera de Cartagena- La Union, Cartagena, Murcia, Spain.  These barites are diamond shaped tabs of a medium blue color that have interesting multiple phantoms within them.  The crystals exhibit nice transparence to translucence in large examples, very high lusters for barite, and form aesthetic plates and clusters.  Most are crystallized on their bases (so are floaters) but poorly so.  Occasionally they have tiny brown areas that appear to be altered sulfides.  This attractive plate of crystals measures 7.4 x 4.8 x 3 cm.  The back edge has two broken crystals that do not show in most normal views.  $40

OKP-676    Barite     Victoria Mine, Cabezo de San Gines, El Estrecho de San Gines, Sierra Minera de Cartagena- La Union, Cartagena, Murcia, Spain.  These barites are diamond shaped tabs of a medium blue color that have interesting multiple phantoms within them.  The crystals exhibit nice transparence to translucence in large examples, very high lusters for barite, and form aesthetic plates and clusters.  Most are crystallized on their bases (so are floaters) but poorly so.  Occasionally they have tiny brown areas that appear to be altered sulfides.  This attractive plate of crystals measures 7.2 x 5 x 2.7 cm.  This piece is in wonderful condition with the only damage being one very tiny tip ding visible with magnification.  The crystals on this one are larger and of the brightest blue color available.  $100

 

 

 

 

 

OKP-677

OKP-677    Barite     Victoria Mine, Cabezo de San Gines, El Estrecho de San Gines, Sierra Minera de Cartagena- La Union, Cartagena, Murcia, Spain.  These barites are diamond shaped tabs of a medium blue color that have interesting multiple phantoms within them.  The crystals exhibit nice transparence to translucence in large examples, very high lusters for barite, and form aesthetic plates and clusters.  Most are crystallized on their bases (so are floaters) but poorly so.  Occasionally they have tiny brown areas that appear to be altered sulfides.  This attractive plate of crystals measures 5.9 x 4 x 2 cm.  This piece is in good condition with the only damage being one small tip ding and typical (actually not typical for these specimens) edge contact damage.    $40

OKP-679     Barite     Victoria Mine, Cabezo de San Gines, El Estrecho de San Gines, Sierra Minera de Cartagena- La Union, Cartagena, Murcia, Spain.  These barites are diamond shaped tabs of a medium blue color that have interesting multiple phantoms within them.  The crystals exhibit nice transparence to translucence in large examples, very high lusters for barite, and form aesthetic plates and clusters.  Most are crystallized on their bases (so are floaters) but poorly so.  Occasionally they have tiny brown areas that appear to be altered sulfides.  This attractive plate of crystals measures 5 x 3 x 3 cm.  One can easily see that this one is different from others in that is distinctly shows two generations of crystals.  The first are exceptionally thick, large crystals and the second are very small ones, mostly perched on the termination points of the first generation crystals.  One crystal on back edge is damaged.  Minor and not noticeable in normal views.   $50
