Item #A23

Very aesthetic plate featuring colorless Calcite crystals with Stibnite spears on Dolomite covered matrix!
For some reason, rhombic Calcite with Stibnite spear combos are almost impossible to find at the shows. I don't know
if they don't survive the extraction process or if they are just very rare to find at the mining source but this is the
first plate of size that I've seen in years. The Calcite rhombs are transparent down to the matrix and measure to
3+ cm in size. They are glassy-lustrous with several internal rainbows. The brilliant Stibnite crystal spears
measure to over 6 cm in length and most exhibit terminations with one spear having terminated into matrix. The
crystals are in great shape with only a scattering of trivial contacts. I don't know when I'll find another of these.
