Calcite (fluorescent)
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 2.2 x 1.4 cm
Samson Mine, St Andreasberg, Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany
Ex. Kay Robertson

Extremely unusual, old-time set of stacked, and en-echelon, hexagonal Calcites from the Samson Mine. These silky Calcites are quite sharp, and form two attached totems with a central strand in each. The complex crystals are translucent to gemmy, and fluorescent. Undoubtedly mined at least 150 years ago, this exceptional small cab was owned by well-known mineral dealer W.J. Knowlton in the mid-1800s. Quite aesthetic. #11054 in Kay's collection.
