Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Large Cabinet, 17.3 x 13.1 x 12.3 cm
A large, 15 cm across, light cognac colored, doubly-terminated and twinned, calcite crystal, is the largest of a cluster emplaced on cherty, gray limestone. There are also a few lustrous, gray, galena crystals, to 1.0 cm across. One termination of the large calcite crystal has a small ding, but overall specimen looks is very nice and sharp overall, plus you only feel the ding when you run your fingers over that tip. Considering the exposure of this 3-dimensional piece in the pocket, it is amazing it has survived at all, basically complete all around and on the rock matrix still! I feel this is a very cheap price for such a dramatic piece, with the matrix as you have it.
