These are some of the best quality Barite crystals that I’ve seen from Muddy Creek, not to mention the habit that is so incredibly eye-catching. This miniature specimen features hundreds of sharp, rather lustrous, very well-formed, snow-white blades of Barite forming a beautiful “flower”-shaped group on minor matrix. The luster combined with the “stacked” or layered growth of the Barites is what makes the piece so good for the locality. Additionally, the crystals have a growth that is atypical compared to most I’ve seen from Muddy Creek. This is from a recent find (2010), and represents some of the best quality pieces to come out of this area in years.
