Simply gorgeous, these intensely colored calcites are some of the most beautiful ever seen, from here or anywhere. This particular specimen has a pristine rollign carpet with saturated color and a superb luster to the crystals, at the top percentile of this material. Although briefly common now, I expect the find will be short lived and in hindsight, these were some of the most beautiful minerals money could buy for a reasonable price.
