Northern Lights Mine, Hussman Spring, Black Mountain, Warsuk Range, Mountain View District, Mineral Co., Nevada, USA
Cabinet, 12.0 x 11.0 x 6.0 cm
A stunning, cabinet example of the aragonites from this one-time find of a couple of years ago - not only beautiful, but an important new find of aragonite from anywhere, much less America. This super piece has a unique flower bouquet look, with tiny crystals growing like teeth on an earlier generation of sharp, larger crystals. This is not only a large specimen, but the crystals really stick up off the matrix in bold relief, in a series of interconnected bursts of crystals framed by the contrasting iron-rich matrix.
