The baryte-calcite deposit at Aguathuna was a "white smoker" millions of years ago. That is, an ocean-bottom hot spring, of sorts, that precipitated barium, calcium and sulfur/sulphate compounds in an area. Eventually, various minerals with those elements formed good crystals in the deposit. Here is a good example of calcite from there.
