PKR17 Orpiment with Barite
Quiruvilca Dist., Santiago de Chuco Prov., La Libertad Dept., Peru
11.7x 8.2x 7.6 cm
$480

A nice specimen of barite on orpiment, with the rock matrix visible (having a visible rock matrix is rather unusual for these).

 

Specimens like this are not coming out of the mine anymore, and if they are being found the miners are unable to remove them from the mine.  This one was from the old stock of a dealer.

 

Very colorful, and in very good condition-- there are some scuffs, but it is in much, much better shape than most.
