16769: Calcite -
Edgemont Uranium District, Fall River County, South Dakota
Cabinet - 12.3 x 9.7 x 6.1 cm (4.8 x 3.8 x 2.4 inches)
460 grams (1.01 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

Calcites from the Edgemont Uranium District are uncommon (Mindat has just one photo). This is a fine example, featuring a dense coverage of very light golden yellow, translucent calcite rhombs to about 1 cm in size set in a matrix cleft. A few colorless and transparent second-generation calcites of a discoid shape are also present. Except for the usual edge issues no damage is seen. Displays nicely without needing additional support.
