Barytes

Description:

A near rectangular shaped mineral specimen.

 

The specimen has been roughly shaped into a rectangular block as is standard in mineral specimen collections.  It has one earlier catalogue label stuck on it, reading - '110', which probably identifies it as part of the Bruce collection donated to the Stewartry Museum in 1893.
