Item Description

Large pair of intergrown, gemmy twinned Calcites from the famous Wessels Mine. The large (up to 6.5 cm) crystals are gemmy, zoned, and have luster that ranges from frosted to superb. There is some admitted minor edgewear and a few dings. The red fluorescence, classic for Wessels, is an attractive faint red deep within. In form, they rather remind me of the famous yellow twinned calcites from Sarbay (Rudni).
