Looks like Baryte to me too. Is it particularly heavy for it's size?
Cheers, Bill

Hi  


It is heavy compared to other pebbles; I have had a look at photos of Baryte and have found some that resemble the crystal structure of this stone.


Would you say that this is a natural or imported stone?


 


Thanks Denis

Probably a glacial erratic transported via the ice sheets from further 'up North' (Hey, its all 'North' from here!! ^^). So probably natural, but many hundreds of miles from its source.
