RF323: Calcite and Marcasite
Brushy Creek Mine, Viburnum Trend District, Reynolds County, Missouri
Cabinet - 11.8 x 9.1 x 3.6 cm (4.6 x 3.6 x 1.4 inches)
Weight - 146 grams (0.32 pounds)
ex Roy Foerster collection
Specimen status: Sold

A cluster of translucent to opaque, grey calcite scalenohedra, having a coating of tiny, glistening marcasite on selected calcites. Individual calcite crystals reach 5.8 cm in length. Displays nicely in a horizontal configuration on its naturally flat base, but needs a stand for vertical display. Except for one incomplete calcite termination along the edge, no damage. Classic Brushy Mine material!
