WG06 Calcite
Knoxville, Marion Co., Iowa, United States
12.7x 8.8x 7.5 cm

A very nice (and old) example of Calcite from Iowa.  Apart from the pieces recently produced at the Linwood Mine, not very many minerals come from this state. This piece dates to the 1960's, and features a spray of calcite prfectly positioned on a dark matrix covered with smaller calcites.  There are even a number of tabular yellow barites sprnkled around.  There is a smaller cluster on the lower front that is broken (pictured.)
