Item Description

This fascinating specimen formed when gemmy calcite crystals grew in the natural pocket formed by a buried fossil clamshell. The interior of the shell is now completely covered with these fine, golden crystals. This one has a really beautiful flower shape and strong fluorescence. Classic material from a small quarry in Florida, unique in the world!
