Cabinet, 10.9 x 6.5 x 2.7 cm
Irai, Alto Uruguai region, Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
Irai has produced various types of calcite specimen sporadically over many years. What is wonderful is the great variety you see. This one a single, wonderful large compound crystal, with a pebbly surface and creamy translucency. It sticks up from a matrix that has the usual copper-mineral green tones, but also a hint of purple amethyst crystals and these two colors add beauty to the specimen.
