Barite on malachite, Katanga
description: This is how the specimen appeared in the Sotheby's catalog for the sale of the Freilich mineral collection in January 2001. If sold at auction, the piece would also attract a 10% buyer's premium and 4% New York state sales tax. This piece has stood the test of time. It is probably the finest barite with malachite specimen in existence and prospects for other combination specimens of this type are bleak. Hence, what the piece may have been worth is irrelevant to the value of this piece today.
