Amethyst Cast After Calcite
Catalan Grande Quarry, Artigas, Uruguay
Cabinet, 12.0 x 9.0 x 8.0 cm
Ex. Robert Nowakowski
A beautiful encrustation pseudomorph of amethyst crystals after a scalenohedron of calcite, 9-cm long. Much of the calcite is missing now (dissolved away in nature) based on the light weight of the specimen. The crystal form of the calcite was faithfully preserved in the sparkling amethyst cast, and the specimen is very asthetic overall.
