Cabinet, 11.0 x 8.0 x 6.8 cm
Durango, Mexico
A superb specimen from the finds of gorgeous, silky calcites in Durango. There is one big, fine twin (5.5 cm across) right in the middle of the specimen. This is distinguished from any specimen I have ever seen from this locality by its amazing form: the plate of crystals sitting upright on a natural "base" of matrix. It doesn't even need a stand! 11 x 8 x 6.8 cm
