Item Description

A superb, classic, tabular butterfly-twinned calcite miniature from the 2000s finds at this obscure locale. The beautifully elegant optical quality twin has silky lustre faces. Many different calcite forms were found, but the twins were certainly the most desirable. The little calcite spray on the front adds pizzazz. Complete all-around and pristine. Contacts on the back, where other crystals once lay, have no damage, per se. Ghostly white fluorescence. Very aesthetic. Valued at $500.
