The Black Cloud mine is renowned for its sulfide specimens, but it has also produced the classic golden Barites for which the Leadville Mining District is known. Here we have a beautiful miniature specimen comprising bladed, sharp, gemmy, lustrous Barite crystals with that classic golden color sitting on matrix. Upon close inspection one can see that the crystals actually show classic, beautiful internal "phantoms". This specimen came out in the late 1970s or possibly early 1980s. This area has produced some of the finest Barites from Colorado, and these specimens are highly sought after by Colorado collectors for the attractive color and form.
