- Calcite (unusual large cluster)
- Large Cabinet, 30.0 x 21.6 x 9.6 cm
- Rosiclare Level, Minerva Mine #1, Hardin County, Illinois, USA
- Ex. Ross Lillie
A huge cluster of unusual aesthetics: intergrown rosettes of lustrous and translucent, dark amber-colored calcite are highlighted by a huge spherical cluster over 8 cm across in the middle. Mined from the Cross-cut ore body and from the Ross Lillie collection. RCL#0387. This looks great vertically or horizontally. It is a surprisingly decorative and sculptural piece, the likes of which I had not seen before from the District in anything bigger than half this size. It is also in remarkable condition.
