Calcite- Classic form with minor Pyrite
Shullsburg, Lafayette County
Wisconsin, United States
10.8 x 9 x 7.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $390
Pre Holiday 2017

This is a choice Shullsburg Calcite with the classic stepped Scalenenohedral crystals that have enlarged clear prismatic terminations. Far more transparent in person this has glassy luster and faint phantoms of internal Pyrite crystals. In excellent condition the only damage is the base and back lower edge area where this was removed. A choice older specimen, these are modern classics and this is like a textbook example of epitaxial alignment of prism faces.
