Calcite, Fluorite
Small Cabinet, 6.7 x 6.3 x 5.6 cm
Mun. de Melchor Muzquiz, Coahuila, Mexico
This is a unique combo specimen, the likes of which I have not seen before from the locality! A cluster of translucent, frosted, tabular, cream colored, fishtail-twins of Calcite is aesthetically perched on deep purple cubes of lustrous fluorite. All are translucent, in person, though its hard to convey the fluorite's color without overexposing the calcite in the picture. The sharply twinned Calcite crystals, with extremely well-defined twinning planes running down the a axis, reach 3 cm across, while the largest fluorite crystals are 2 cm across. This is just a lovely and unique combo specimen. 6.7 x 6.3 x 5.6 cm
