This is a beautiful cluster of barite (baryte) crystals that are encrusted in pyrite micro-crystals, collected from a pocket of Poland's famous Lubin Mine, known as "Rutyna's Pocket". The barite displays a deep honey coloration with little to no damage to the majority of the crystals on this specimen.
The Lubin Mine in Poland has been around since the early 1960's and is known as one of the largest copper and silver ore producers in the world. Occasionally, varieties of minerals make it out of this mine and onto the market; this gorgeous pyrite encrusted baryte specimen being one of those.
