Calcite on Fluorite
Large Cabinet, 20.2 x 15.0 x 8.7 cm
Denton Mine, Hardin Co., Illinois, USA
Ex. Ross Lillie
Just an impressive big matrix calcite of unusual aspect for this district. Aesthetically emplaced on a brecciated limestone and purple fluorite crystals is a large doubly-terminated calcite crystal cluster highlighted by small gemlike crystals to the sides. The calcite is lustrous and translucent with a rich amber color, and is 13 cm in length. There are a few insignificant bruises on the large calcite crystal which can be easily removed with acid if desired. Still and all, this is big, showy, and priced right, but it is nevertheless an major display piece for this district. RCL 1900
