Specimen status: Sold

A Viburnum Trend classic! A cluster of sharply-crystallized and pristinely terminated, gray calcite scalenohedra hosts a covering of sparkling marcasite on selected crystals of the cluster. The calcites reach 3.3 cm in height. Hard to find a good, affordable example these days. Sits perfectly for display on its naturally flat base. No damage.
