Hi Michael,

I didn't recognize your name until I was going through my invoices from the show! It was a pleasure to meet you, and thanks for stopping by to visit.

The halite locality info should be the Kerr McGee mine, Carlsbad Potash District, Eddy County, New Mexico. The halite specimens never came from the PCA mine, and one of my current goals is to get much of the locality information cleaned up on Mindat.

Nice to meet you too Philip. Thanks for the locality info. I was under the impression that the two locations were the same. The Kerr McGee Mine is now in the database.

Thanks again,
Michael

Thank you Gérard. That contrast was what initially attracted me to the piece. The calcites are like little jewels sitting on that fluorite. The twinning is a bonus.
