SIZE: 13" x 9"
Description: A large, dramatic, museum sized
crystal group of calcite crystals from the world renowned Sweetwater
mine in Missouri. The specimen exhibits sharp, lustrous
scalenohedral crystals to over 4" which have a two toned color ranging
from white bases to yellow at the terminations. The piece was collected
by Pat G. Cullen in 1979. Pat was a geology student back in the day
when working mines allowed an enthusiastic youngter with the collecting
bug to run around in the mines digging mineral specimens!
This beautiful specimen weighs over 18 pounds and was the pride
of Pat's collection for
over 36 years. It is certainly clear to see why from the images!
