A new find just before the Tucson Show at a mine that had never really been worked for specimens. These new barites have the most incredible luster and tremendously sharp chiseled crystals to 2.3 cm (rare in Mexico where the habit tends to be tabular). They are completely transparent and run from a blue grey to yellow grey pastel colors. This one is yellowish grey. They make wonderful display specimens and were written up briefly in the newest Min. Rec. issue. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get the color accurately in the photo. To my knowledge, no more have been found.
