Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Large Cabinet, 27.2 x 16.5 x 13.0 cm

The two largest crystals of calcite in this cluster are doubly-terminated with multi-forked tips. The intense cognac color and gemminess is more pronounced at the terminations. The large crystal is a whopping 22.0 cm across. Pristine too! This piece is so large and perfect, you just do NOT come across such things often - even in the heyday of the mine.
