Item Description

Surreal looking curved calcite helictites from mid-2000s finds at the Holbrook Mine at Bisbee. Malachite inclusions give the sugary, translucent helictites and larger secondary calcite rhombohedrons a pretty green hue. One side of the fantastic piece is helectite with the other side richly and dramatically covered with secondary, glassy and translucent rhombs with less color, Complete all-around and essentially pristine. A sawed attachment is on the right side of the helectite side and there are two more attachments at the base of the piece. Ex Les and Paula Presmyk Collection and valued at $850. A bizarre looking and most excellent two-sided Bisbee calcite from the collection of a well-known Arizona dealer and collector.
