I have been collecting minerals from this locality for about 15 years. Finding a good, collectible calcite specimen that is not in bad condition turned out to be one of my most difficult targets. This was the piece that satisfied my need for a nice calcite in fine condition from the locality. The piece is beautiful and is also a nice combination. The calcites are pale yellowish and translucent and sit nicely on quartz crystals. Rhombic dolomite can be seen at the front edge of the piece and a small group of contrasting pyrite is present too.
