Item Description

An nifty 5-piece deal of calcite crystals from an UNCOMMON Mexican locale - Abasolo, Durango. ALL 5 of the pieces have butterfly-twinned calcite crystals on them! The smallest thumbnail is a really cute butterfly-twin. The other twins are nicely set with scalenohedral or blocky calcite crystals. These came from a find around 7 years ago and all of the calcites have distinctive "silky" luster. Ex. Dave Stoudt collection.
