These unique calcite crystals from Northern Mexico's Palmarejo mine caused a minor sensation when they first appeared on the market, and it is easy to see why- with their 3-4 distinct generations of different colored calcite and large, sculptural crystals they are aesthetic as can be. This is a fine large example with well-defined overgrowths and interesting black outlines almost reminiscent of the popular and treasured "calcite skunks" from Irai, Brazil. Light brown calcites overgrow the earlier white to black crystals and provide super aesthetic contrast, especially as they preferentially coat certain faces. A modern Mexican mineral classic!
