Calcite, Celestine
Holloway Quarry (Rockwood quarry), Berlin Township, Newport, Monroe Co., Michigan, USA
Cabinet, 9.7 x 7.7 x 5.1 cm
You do NOT see many of these Holloway Quarry calcites on the market at all! They are distinctive for this combination with bladed crystals of celestite. Here, the calcite scalenohedrons have a glowing, pretty golden translucence. They appear in a very attractive balance with the celestites.
