A beautiful singular transparent, light blue baryte doubly-terminated crystal. These well-formed crystals came from a lesser known locality in Colchester County in Nova Scotia. The specimen is well mounted on an acrylic base.

From Mindat:

"An isolated mass of barite in a roadcut on Lynn Road. Discovered by Dick McAllister about the year 2000. The mass was roughly 2 ft across and consisted of friable pinkish massive barite. On the outside of the mass were some grayish blue crystals. The crystals had good transparency and were attractive. Very dirty calcite crystals were also found nearby. A search of the surrounding area produced no additional barite."*
