A really beautiful calcite because of the clarity of the water-clear calcite on top of the green mottramite-coated matrix. It is stunning! The smaller calcite, in front, is 3 cm across. It has minor edge wear on the bottom but this does not detract at all, visually. The upper crystal shooting up from the top of the piece is to 3 cm on edge, or 4.5 cm across longways. It is complete on the front and all around the sides, contacted slightly on the backside only. This piece is in incredible display piece and shows off dramatically - MUCH better in person.
