Three partly intersecting Barite "roses" make up this specimen. All have dimensions of approximately 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.0" (5.6 x 5.1 x 2.5 cm). One of these roses is noticeably damaged, as one of its blades is broken and incomplete, and the other two are intact and in excellent condition. All have reasonably good form, with rounded but definable edges and clean faces that actually show a grainy, pearly luster. They have the classic red coloration and are opaque, of course. A small amount of a dull, dark red material rests in a few crevices on the piece- it looks like a sandstone.
