Barite on calcite
<p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Meikle Mine, Elko County,, Nevada, United States
<br /><br />3" Tall
<br /><br />The Meikle Mine produced some of the world's finest barite specimens in the late 1990's. Barite was a common species at the Meikle Mine. Despite this, relatively few were saved since the crystal lined pockets of this fragile mineral species occurred in an operating gold mine. For every Meikle Mine barite specimen that one sees in collections, over 100 others would have been shattered and turned to a fine dust during normal mining operations. This fine piece was bought from Dan Weinrich in December 2017.
