Barite
<p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Meikle Mine, Elko County, Nevada, United States
<br /><br />4 1/2" Across 
<br /><br />Fine crystallized barite was mined from the Meikle Mine when it was operated by Barrack Gold Corporation in 1997 and 1998. This piece is unusually fine since there are no cleavage faces present on any of the crystals. The are golden, glassy lustered and pristine on all of the edges and vertices. This is remarkable considering that this piece was recovered from a pocket in an operating gold mine.
