An impressive, 5.0 cm, translucent, lustrous, golden-amber, compound calcite crystal dramatically set on mounded matrix from the famous Berry Materials Quarry at North Vernon, Indiana. The blocky form of this complete all-around and nearly pristine crystal is striking. The few points of trivial edgewear are certainly not a detraction, as you can see. Classic and highly desirable matrix material from this well-known locale. The piece displays well without any aid. Ex Jaime Bird Collection. Valued $400-500
