The photos do not do this piece justice; it is so much more impressive in person! What we have is a large, central scalenohedral calcite crystal with a thin orange layer that is completely covered with a second generation of parallel flattened rhombohedral calcite crystals. The result is quite stunning and very 3D and textural when you see it with your own eyes. The outer calcite crytals are translucent and slightly yellowish, and they allow you to see the orange calcite crystal through it giving them specimen many layers of depth. The condition is excellent with no notable damage. Just the bottom where the specimen was sawed from the host rock.

 The specimen comes with a custom acrylic display base.
