Galena and baryte (also called barite) from Morocco, both are two common minerals which are often found together and form as mineral veins in other rocks as well as in each other, both are extremely dense yet both also break or fracture extremely easily, sometimes even shattering into numerous pieces just by being dropped on the floor. These mineral specimens show in excellent detail baryte in its massive form with occurrences of blue galena veins with a metallic lustre resulting in two contrasting colours of off white and shining blue which makes it very attractive to many collectors. However, these samples which are supplied in lots of 1 kilogram are ideal for educational use, kits or more, where the association between certain minerals can be spoken of. The pieces will vary between 20 mm to 50 mm and come supplied in a polythene bag with a label. NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 12 YEARS OLD.
