Miniature - 5.5 x 3.0 x 1.7 cm (2.2 x 1.2 x 0.7 inches)

Willemite and Calcite - $12
Preguiça Mine, Sobral da Adiça, Moura, Beja District, Portugal
Miniature - 4.6 x 4.4 x 3.8 cm (1.8 x 1.7 x 1.5 inches)

A limonite/gossan matrix hosts sparkly crusts of tiny, colorless to tan willemite crystals. These willemites exhibit strong shortwave fluorescence. Scattered about the specimen are some colorless calcite crystal groups which reach 1.5 cm across. No damage.

Willemite and Calcite - $16
Preguiça Mine, Sobral da Adiça, Moura, Beja District, Portugal
Miniature - 5.0 x 4.0 x 2.8 cm (2.0 x 1.6 x 1.1 inches)
Specimen status: Available     Send email to order

A limonite/gossan matrix cleft hosts a sparkly crust of tiny, colorless to tan willemite crystals. These willemites exhibit strong shortwave fluorescence. Right in the middle of the willemite crust is an 8 mm colorless calcite group. Very slight microchipping to the calcite, otherwise no damage.







28871:
Calcite included with Pyrite/Marcasite
Conco Mine, North Aurora, Kane County, Illinois
Miniature - 4.3 x 3.5 x 2.2 cm (1.7 x 1.4 x 0.9 inches)

A miniature cluster of mostly translucent, gray calcite scalenohedral points, with sparkling, metallic pyrite or marcasite inclusions. Individual calcites reach about 1.4 cm. The inclusions are closer to the surfaces than the cores of the calcites, suggesting deposition late in the calcite growth. A little bruising is noted, but not a distraction at this price.
