Aragonite, Calcite
Sichuan Province, China
Cabinet, 14.8 x 6.2 x 4.8 cm
From the collection of Dave Stoudt, a FASCINATING, extraordinary-looking mineral specimen indeed -- a stalactite of calcite that looks like an elongated finger (it even appears to have a fingernail!), with a cap of flowery aragonite crowning it! It is complete all around, with no damage. One of those cool "oddity" specimens that is really attention-getting.
