This is such a delightful and aesthetic small cab from Minerva! The sections of the 'snowman' are composed of thin, stacked nail-head Calcites with the trigonal 'Mercedes' termination. The Calcite has an intense white fluorescence. Associated are purple Fluorite crystals and Sphalerite. This is a very fine, aesthetic specimen in every respect. Custom base included. Mined in 1991.
