Cabinet, 12.0 x 10.9 x 6.4 cm
Charcas, Mun. de Charcas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico
This is an utterly spectacular, large and beautiful specimen from Charcas, which is known for these disc-like calcites, but not typically of this magnitude or overall aesthetics. A chunkier crystal serves as the base, and stacked together atop it is a cluster of whopper crystals, to 7 cm across. They are frosty on the side faces, and glossy and transparent around the edges. Ex. Nowakowski Collection.
