SOLD Calcite - classic USA
Minerva #1 Mine, Cave-in-Rock, Hardin County
Illinois, United States
8 x 6.8 x 4.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $0


Sharp and very esthetic clusters of tapered "flame" habit Calcite from the famed Minerva #1 Mine. These Calcite have elongated prisms that are almost needle-like at the terminations which are very slender and delicate. A classic of the southern Illinois Fluorite district, these are not often seen for sale. An important and unique style this is an excellent addition to a good Calcite or southern Illinois collection. The Calcites are all frosted with a white coating but below that they are a bright yellow-orange color. Some tips on the left side back are cleaved but nearly all the others are perfect. From logical display angles there is no visible damage and the condition is excellent for one of these delicate Calcites.
