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 highly aesthetic and visually dramatic. This is a very large, fine example with well-defined overgrowths and interesting black outlines almost reminiscent of the popular and treasured "calcite skunks" from Irai Region of Brazil. A modern Mexican mineral classic!
