Y1614 Calcite
Sweetwater Mine, Viburnum Trend, Reynolds Co., Missouri, United States
5.8x 5.8x 4.5 cm
$285

A perfectly terminated and very gemmy calcite on matrix, from the Sweetwater Mine.  These things are usually light yellow and have a milky quality to them-- this one was particularly nice, and even has a small glaena cube near the base of the crystal.  I often see them sold by the flat as wholesale-- always with dings, cleaved terminations, and absolutely no transparency, but again, this one is a cut above.  

This piece comes from an Australian collection.
