  • Wow! A natural gem! This gorgeous calcite crystal has high luster and wonderfully complex crystallography. According to the re-entrant angle on the back, it is twinned. Very gemmy with a very light yellow colouration. Beautiful crystal! t

  • A really nice, twinned calcite crystal, with a couple of smaller crystals attached to the bottom. The whole specimen has a dusting of tiny marcasite crystals, which is typical for this long closed locality.

  • This is an interesting, "old time". It appears to be a flattened rhombohedron of white calcite that has either grown onto or has adhering to it a bizarre, scalenohedral growth of the same mineral, although more lustrous and more clear. Kind of like a giant thumbtack. Some tiny pyrite crystals sprinkled here and there. Old labels (see pic) accompany the specimen and identify it as from Pibram in 1940. Really interesting calcite specimen! t

  • This specimen is actually part of a void caused by a fossilized shell cast. The cast has soe excellent calcite crystals lining one side of it. These specimens came out 10 years or so ago but we don't seem to see any newer ones, anymore. Very interesting and beautiful

  • A beautiful plate of calcite crystals showing unusual morphology; very elongated scalenohedra with small rhombic faces at the termination. The crystals are full of tiny marcasite crystals, inside the crystals. There are no marcasite crystals outside of the calcite or in-on the matrix. Very nice piece!! Displays very well!

  • A beautiful example of "coquina" a clamshell-packed type of limestone that is just chock full of the little clamshells, all the same size. Interestingly, every little clam fossil is a geode lines with small calcite crystals and one or two larger, twinned calcite crystals. Beautiful and interesting!
