Item Description

Impressive and sculptural large cluster of variably-sized parallel-growth calcite crystals from the famous Sweetwater Mine. The translucent, waxy luster creamy crystals are strikingly enhanced by the internal cross-hatched patterns. The piece has a surprising fine BONUS. Backlighting reveals a large phantom of an earlier generation calcite scalenohedron. The broken base shows the gemmier, straw-yellow scalenohedron. Ex Chet Lemanski Collection No. 07794 and acquired in 1997. Mass is 1679 grams or 3.7 pounds. Complete all-around and pristine. Classic and excellent large two-generation calcite from the locale.
