Calcite, Galena
Yuzhna Petrovitza deposit, Borieva Mine, Madan ore field, Rhodope Mts, Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
Large Cabinet, 18.0 x 12.0 x 7.5 cm
A large and simply spectacular calcite specimen! The crystals have piled up like stacks of chips into "fingers" or towers, some of them looking as though they are getting ready to topple in one direction or another. The specimen features fine luster and a pretty orange/cream color, and is in pristine condition. The variety of calcites coming out of Eastern Europe has just been astounding, and you see one after another of a type you haven't seen before. This is a big, showy and fascinating mineral specimen! 18 x 12 x 7.5 cm
