Large Cabinet, 17.2 x 5.3 x 4.5 cm
Charcas, Mun. de Charcas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico
A large and very unusually shaped, lustrous, and translucent CABINET-SIZED calcite crystal from Charcas with a smaller attached crystal. The specimen has a very sharp chisel termination and one side of the large calcite crystal has a stepped growth pattern. This piece is MUCH BETTER in person, as the contrasting gray and colorless tones caused many of the details to wash out. Minor contacting and a few bruises do not diminish this specimen, the likes of which I simply have not seen before from Charcas in this size 17.2 x 5.3 x 4.5 cm
