Locality: Linwood Mine, Buffalo, Scott Co., Iowa

Size:  7 x 6 x 5 cm

A  gemmy Barite on matrix from the 2016 find. There has been no significant new finds
of Barites since then, though a great find of gemmy Calcites was made in 2017.  
Note the transparent gemmy amber termination. At the lower end is a very unusual
pointed  termination that I've not seen before.
