Item Description

A DRAMATIC, very attractive CABINET calcite specimen from recent finds at Santa Eulalia, Mexico. Sharp, lustrous, and translucent, dogtooth calcite crystals are partially coated with hematite and have striking, clay-stained, internal, hematite phantoms. Crystals reach 4.0 cm on this piece. The vast majority of the calcites are in great shape, and the periphery wear in the front has minimal impact on this impressive large piece.
