Ex. Ross Lillie
Choice set of vanilla-colored Calcites on a bed of purple Fluorite. The largest Calcite is an amazing 12 cm long, and it is doubly-terminated. They are translucent, lustrous, and the faces are finely stepped. There are even a few poker-chip Calcites to add variety of habit. Outstanding, simple aesthetics. Mined in 1992, and an unusual style for this district.
