Description: BARITE
Lane Co., Oregon
Sometimes referred to as "Bologna Stone" barite (or baryte) was prized by 17th-century alchemists for the fluorescing properties of specimens found near Bologna. This attractive specimen boasts the flat hexagonal crystal habit, clustered together with a soft gray-blue coloring dramatically offset by strong orange patches. A fine collector's piece, it measures 5 x 4 5/8 x 2 1/2 inches.
