PostPosted: Feb 20, 2024 07:10    Post subject: Collection of Carles Millan: Calcite from Elmwood  

Calcite CaCO3, sphalerite ZnS, dolomite CaMg(CO3)2

Two glassy gem crystals of calcite to 37 mm in length set nicely on a breccia matrix with crystallized sphalerite and white pearly dolomite crystals. One of the calcite crystals is twinned. It seems like there are two generations, since the habits of both neighbor calcite crystals are different. No damage.

Dimensions: 65 mm x 57 mm x 50 mm.
Largest crystal size: 37 mm tall.
Mass (weight): 162 g.

From Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn District, Smith County, Tennessee, USA.

Oh, I forgot that:
CONGRATULATIONS ON TWO MILLION VIEWS!
Well deserved! Not only because you have a great taste for aesthetics but also because you always provide so much information. About the specimens, their paragenesis, their exact size and weight, their provenance. I consider you a real mineral connoisseur who is an important member of our community. I hope you're doing well, please keep posting all the great stuff that made your collection thread so popular!

A lot to do, little time and no new minerals since my Madan galena from november. But I look into the forum almost every day :-)

Best regards
Tobi

To Don Lum, Am Mizunaka, and Tobias Martin

A great thanks to all of you for your kind words, but getting the two million is not as important as you think. Four of you got there before. Consider also that I began posting in 2008, while the others did it several years later. And the numerous members of the forum who have had the patience to view my pages. So the milestone must indeed be for you.

You're right, it's not important, for it is just a digital number on a website. But it shows that you give a lot to other people who share this hobby. And I think you can be proud to have one of the most-frequented threads here in our community.

I think it does not need patience to enjoy such an excellent presentation of a high-class mineral collection ;-)
