Murray mine, Sugarbowl pocket, Independance Mts. District, Elko Co., Nevada, United States

Brilliant sparkling thumbnail to toenail with excellent form. A modern USA classic, this is a cluster of blocky Barites (Barytes) that are well covered with a druzy Quartz. Highly lustrous, this looks just like sugar cubes. From the one time find more than 20 years ago at the Murray Mine(Elko, Nevada, USA) from a remarkable pocket called the "sugarbowl". In perfect condition and far more bright and glittery in person.
