BARITE

Nutfield, near Redhill, Surrey
 
The classic honey-coloured crystals of barite from the Fuller’s Earth pits at Nutfield in Surrey are well-known to mineral collectors but it has not been possible to collect them since the pits were closed in the 1990s. These pits have been worked since medieval times and the occurrence of barite here was first recorded in 1819.

The barite occurred as intergrown, translucent or transparent crystals with milky quartz occupying the voids between the crystals.

This piece consists of solid translucent barite. It is slightly bruised but is a good colour. It is presented in a lidded gift box.​​​​​​​
