Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 7.3 x 5.5 cm
Black Rock, Lawrence County, Arkansas, USA
This famous quarry has produced many calcite specimens, but very few nicer than this one: It is a colorful specimen with high luster and a gemmy knob-like complex termination. Exhibiting stepped growth in the lower 2/3 of its length, this crystal blossoms into a glassy and gemmy, rich amber color in the upper 1/3. Truly lovely! I have not seen a better one of this style. Ex Cynthia Payne collection.
