A pair of specimens from Denton Mine both displaying similar habits but on different matrices. The specimen on the left is on limestone and the one on the right is on fluorite. I was very happy bring this pair together in my calcite collection!
A great pair!

These peculiar crystal groupings of jackstraw calcites were collected from the dumps of the fluorite processing center in Rosiclaire Illinois in April 2005.
At that time, shortly after the last Harris Creek Mining District mines had closed, some decent specimens could still be collected.
