Item Description

Calcites from the San Martin Mine of Zacatecas are a classic and manganaon calcites are a rare classic. This striking and sculptural combination specimen is aesthetically and richly covered with sprays of glassy, pretty pastel-pink, manganoan calcite scalenohedrons, that cover a matrix of glassy, green, fluorite cuboctahedrons. Very choice, older combination material from the Dick Heck Collection. Fairly valued at $950. SUPER pretty coral orange-pink fluoresence with purple fluorescence on the fluorite.
