Calcite, Hematite
Large Cabinet, 21.9 x 16.8 x 6.5 cm
Santa Eulalia District, Mun. de Aquiles Serdan, Chihuahua, Mexico
From out of the collection of Ed David - a huge plate of spectacular calcite crystals that have been richly included by red hematite - not coated, so that they retain their shiny luster, but have this rich red color to them! The crystal forms are various distortions of the rhombohedron. The matrix has a layer of sparkly calcite microcrystals, also richly included with hematite.
