Description of Mineral Specimen for sale No. 75720:

Mineral Species: Calcite (twinned crystals).
Location of origin: Roosevelt Avenue Quarry (York Stone Quarry), York County, Pennsylvania.
Description: Unusually large translucent yellow calcite crystals with repeated contact-twinning through the middle of the cluster. The calcite crystals originally had limonite-coated faces but the collector cleaned the crystals resulting in lustrous crystal faces. Though the crystals are clean and in good condition, a few show damage upon close inspection, but they are minor compared to the relative size of the specimen. From my personal collection; collected ca. 1993.
Overall size: 11x10x9 cm.
Size of individual crystals: 110 mm
Price: $295 (plus shipping).
