Item Description

Simply a clean, complete, beautiful, stalactite of classic style from this historic locality! 1166 grams. Note the thick concentric banding within. this is the style where mostly they were sliced, to make slices for jewelry and decor, and so very few of these survive in this quality. It is probably worth thousands of dolalrs simply sliced up into slabs and sold to the lapidary market! As a specimen, it is a rare survivor and style today. Thick, Heavy, robust From the collection of East Coast collector, George Elling, specializing in historic minerals of the East Coast and minerals from the development of old European mineralogy.
