Calcite Ps. After Celestite on Fluorite, Pseudo
Sub-Rosiclare Level, Poe Pod, Annabel Lee Mine, Harris Creek District, Illinois, USA
Cabinet, 11.9 x 9.2 x 6.1 cm
Ex. Ross Lillie
Another unusual and possibly unique County piece! In person, this sparkles and glitters with thousands of small calcite crystal reflections. Blocky purple fluorite crystals are the host for sparkling, drusy white calcite crystals which have both coated the underlaying fluorite AND replaced balls of celestine crystals, to 1.5 cm in length. Mined circa 1991. Fascinating combo specimen, as noted on Lillie label from 1991. RCL 1430.
