Nodor, Morocco

This impressive spray of an incredible Blue Barite cluster is on matrix and is of the finest grade. Clusters of this magnitude, size and quality are incredibly rare. A most remarkable feature is that of the proximity of the clusters to each other, amassing into one large stunning piece, rather than spaced small clusters.. This is a very 3-dimensional and sculptural specimen and has a wide rage of presentation. The crystals here are composed of individuals that are sharp and mainly doubly terminated, with some sword-tip terminations and thin, tabular bladed crystals. It embodies a stunning sky blue color and an incredible luster and translucency. Until the mine closed in 2015, Blue Barite from Morocco was one of the hottest items on the mineral market, now that the mine is exhausted, fine pieces like this one are hard to find, and most are damaged, small and colorless. They are definitely one of the finest Barite discoveries in decades when it comes down to size of crystals, color, luster and aesthetics. All crystals are in pristine condition.
