BARITE (‘OAKSTONE’)

Arbor Low, Middleton, Derbyshire

Oakstone is a dark brown, pseudo-stalactitic variety of barite that was first found at Arbor Low in 1832. Although a rare stone it was much used for ornamental purposes in the 19th century, usually inlaid with other Derbyshire stones to make fine table tops. 

This is a small, but typical piece from an old collection which has been polished on one side.

Larger pieces are available from time to time. Please enquire.
