Reward Mine, Manzanar Station area, Inyo Mts (Inyo Range), Inyo Co., California, USA
Miniature, 3.4 x 2.1 x 0.8 cm
This gorgeous miniature hosts a rich caledonite crystallization, including a relative larger (for both species and locale) crystal of 8mm. Trimmed to a thumbnail, it perhaps would be improved in balance and aesthetics, actually. Found in late 2008, these are modern classics for the species, surely the best material found in decades. This piece has a rich covering, and much to look at.
