- Calcite (fluorescent)
- Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 5.2 x 3.8 cm
- Himalaya Mine, Mesa Grande District, San Diego Co., California, USA
- Ex. Kay Robertson
The Himalaya Mine, famous for its Tourmalines, has also produced other fine mineral specimens. Calcite is uncommon there, and this distinctive cluster is composed of highly flattened rhombs with a lacy texture that is reflective of very delicate layering and etching. The arrangement of crystals is attractive, as is the moderate fluorescence. A fine piece for a California or Calcite collector!
