- Calcite (Fluorescent)
- Cabinet, 15.5 x 11.5 x 8.0 cm
- Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Amazing, rather unique specimen of large, sharp fluorescent Calcite crystals - unusual for the locality. The white Calcites have a curving, almost 'stepped' habit, and the largest is just about 12 cm long. This is accompanied by many dozens of smaller Calcites that range from less than 1 cm to almost 5 cm, and the luster on all is very good. The variable fluorescence is a vivid reddish-pink. The is a superior, pristine, aesthetic Calcite with an unusual habit that is quite attractive. Even better in person.
