Barite from Jebel Ouichane, Sagangane, Nador Province, L'Oriental Region, Morocco
From Jebel Ouichane, Sagangane, Nador Province, L'Oriental Region, Morocco.
Here is a superb cluster of these incredible new blue Barites that have been discovered this past year. The crystal growth is in a radial parallel and divergent aggregates of very elongated flattened crystals with good terminations, very acute, between transparent to translucent, bright and with an intense and uniform sky blue color. They are definitely one of the finest barite discoveries in decades when it comes down to size of crystals, color, luster and aesthetics. These are not going to be around long.
