The Rosh Pinah mine opened in 1969, the Barites where found from 1989 onward. While the bulk of the Barites come from this time there are still occasional pockets that are discovered. This is a small specimen from a more recent pocket, on a visit to the mine in 2010 these samples where recovered. While the colour is not a rich golden brown but rather a light tan colour it will fit in well with a Barite collection from this sulphide deposit.
