An unusual district style! Premium plate of well-formed sprays of slender but strong Calcite crystals, on Fluorite, from the Annabel Lee Mine. The tan Calcites average over 3 cm in length, and the sprays are quite aesthetic. Naturally, a few of the tips have been cleaved, but the vast majority are in excellent shape, and the overall aesthetics are excellent. The Calcites even have a modest orange fluorescence. Calcites such as this are extremely rare from Annabel Lee, and this was the finest of this type from Ross' collection. Mined in 1990. RCL0787
