Item Description

Weird-looking, elongated calcite prisms with glassy, chisel terminations and variable iron-oxide tinting on curved CABINET gossan matrix liberally sprinkled with starkly contrasting green conichalcite microcrystals form a dramatic specimen from Mina Ojuela and the Dick Heck Mexico Collection. The parallel-growth and color variations of these cave calcites really adds striking character to this fine and colorful large specimen.
