North Vernon, Indiana is famous for its equant, rounded, golden Calcites and this is a very good example. The main crystal is over 4 cm across, has an amazingly smooth and lustrous surface, and an alluring two-tone, honey-gold color! The big Calcite also has several smaller companion crystals at the base and all of the Calcites on this piece are incredibly transparent! The large crystal is a amber-yellow at the base transitioning to a a honey yellow through the remainder of the crystal to the top. Like most Calcite crystals from here, all of the them display a highly modified rhombohedral habit making them look like they are rounded. The large crystal and the smaller ones to either side are in perfect condition with only minor contacting to those at the base. ex Marty Lewadny collection (Marty was a well known field collector and preacher living in the Winnipeg area)
