Calcite, Hematite
Large Cabinet, 30.4 x 11.0 x 6.3 cm
Santa Eulalia District, Mun. de Aquiles Serdan, Chihuahua, Mexico
A fine, very attractive, elongate, large cabinet calcite plate from recent finds at Santa Eulalia, Mexico. Sharp, lustrous and translucent, amber-colored, dogtooth calcite crystals are partially coated with hematite and have striking, clay-stained, internal, hematite phantoms. Crystals reach 5.8 cm on this piece. This is one of the best large plates from this new find of 2008 that I saw.
