Item Description

Without question, these are among the most distinctive, unique and interesting Calcite specimens out there. This piece comprises a few very lustrous, translucent, layered "rosettes" (intergrown rhombohedra) of Calcite with sharp faces which are included by forest-green Boulangerite. The attractive "twisted" form of the crystals is striking and the piece is complete on all sides. It can easily be displayed from several angles.
