From: La Viesca Mine, La Collada, Siero, Asturias, Spain
Size: 12.2 x 16.5 x 12.3cm
Every so often you'll see an epimorph cast from the La Viesca Mine, but never one as incredible as this! This quartz cast is massive, and is in remarkable condition considering the side of the calcite crystal that it once covered. The entire top section is intact with most of the front. The backside has a perfect opening so that you can easily see the inner wall of the cast.
The fluorite crystals are gemmy and lavender colored. The big one on the front is 1.5cm, but there is a larger, darker one wedged in the crevice on the left. This is really a very special and rare specimen. There are no repairs.
The specimen comes with a Sunnywood display base.
