Baxter Springs, Picher Field, Tri-State District, Cherokee Co., Kansas, USA
Small Cabinet, 9.0 x 4.8 x 4.5 cm
A classic and fine plate of lustrous, brassy, nicely formed cockscomb crystals of marcasite with minor dolomite crystals on the base. Old-time and excellent material from the Kansas portion of the Tri-State District. Ex. Mullane Collection. Fine, robust examples of this classic are hard to come by today, and many have decayed from being stored in high-humidity environs. This one, though, is remarkably intact.
