#20 / Barite - Iowa, USA
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.
