Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 5.4 x 3.6 cm
Charcas, Mun. de Charcas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico
Very unusually shaped, lustrous, translucent and lightly etched colorless calcite crystals from Charcas, Mexcio. This specimen even has a curved calcite crystal! One usually expects to see poker chip calcites from Charcas, which makes this piece quite uncommon. There are a couple of cleaved calcite crystals below the curved crystal, but you don't even really notice them. Front and back views are given of this excellent specimen with truly inctricte geometry. From my personal calcite collection, purchased over a dozen years ago when these were still more readily available 6.8 x 5.4 x 3.6 cm
