From a locality better known for wulfenite comes this mound of translucent, sparkling calcite. Composed of lustrous, roughly scalenohedral crystals which reach 9 mm in size, it displays a greenish-white fluorescence under both longwave and shortwave UV. Sits nicely on its naturally flat base. A few, scattered, minor bumps are present but otherwise overall condition is quite nice.
