Large Cabinet, 19.4 x 11.5 x 10.1 cm
Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Almost every calcite crystal in this cluster is doubly terminated. One crystal is twinned, and all exhibit an intense cognac coloring and gemminess. MEASURE OUT THE SIZE - THE CLUSTER IS NEARLY PRISTINE AND COMPLETE ALL AROUND, ALMOST UNHEARD OF FOR THE SIZE! There are only a few small dings, and those on the BACK side. The largest crystal reaches 17 cm across. Once again the multi-forked terminations are a highlight for me; and I have not seen a large Elmwood in such condition in a long time!
