Item Description

This is one of the great classic US localities, and has produced what are arguably the finest Calcite specimens in the world from the standpoint of size, quality, color, gemminess and overall form. This amazing zinc-producing region (despite several efforts to reopen it) is not operational at the moment and may never again produce these amazing Calcite specimens. This piece features a very attractive, rich golden color, VERY gemmy, highly lustrous, extremely well formed, twinned crystal of Calcite aesthetically sitting atop other Calcite crystals to create a very dramatic and highly desirable display piece. A special small cabinet Calcite from one of the most well known Calcite localities extant! Valued at $2000-$2500 Retail.
