« back
Home > ARCHIVE - sold


Cut and polished slice

Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire.
Barytocelestine is a combination of the minerals barite (barium sulphate) and celestite (strontium sulphate). 

In the Chipping Sodbury area of Gloucestershire barytocelestine sometimes occurs as beautiful salmon-pink, banded, fibrous masses, which line fissures in the local Carboniferous Limestone. 

This piece is very heavy for its size and so makes a great paperweight!
