Calcite, Quartz (Var: Amethyst)
Cabinet, 11.4 x 10.3 x 5.5 cm
Las Choyas, Mun. de Ahumada, Chihuahua, Mexico
A striking and beautiful geode half highlighted by a 2.6 cm, gemmy, amber calcite scalenoehdron. The geode is lined with sparkly, dark amethyst crystals and a few, doubly terminated, pencil calcites to 1.3 cm are a very nice accent. The sawed edge has been sprayed with krylon to give it gloss. Ex. Steve Smale Collection.
