Calcite, Hematite
Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 7.4 x 5.4 cm
Santa Eulalia District, Mun. de Aquiles Serdan, Chihuahua, Mexico
A dramatic, very attractive calcite specimen from recent finds at Santa Eulalia, Mexico. Sharp, lustrous, and translucent, dogtooth calcite crystals are partially coated with hematite and have striking, clay-stained, internal hematite phantoms. Crystals reach 5.2 cm on this piece. The dogteeth are in great shape, with only one crystal having minute edgewear. A classic Santa Eulalia calcite specimen.
