Another specimen from Polveros.
Intergrown groups of colorless calcite rhombohedrons (Some of them striated) with good transparency - gives a glowing effect to the specimen!
Set in a brecciated black shale matrix.

Hi Gerard,

Love your Emerald and Pyrite specimen.

Don

Thanks Don!
This specimen is from the early days of my collection where I didn't really care about labeling - I am not sure where I got it from.
This was the time where material from La Pita was flooding the mineral market i.e. late '90s to early '00s.
Back then, prices were reasonable (sort of) and fakes were not yet predominant on the market.

A near flawless crystal from El Acuario.
Crystals of this locality often exhibit complex pyramidal terminations (Cf. the material from the same locality featuring pencil-like terminations which I posted earlier).
