CR101 - Aragonite (Rough and Cut) - Číčov Hill, Hořenec, Bílina, Ústí Region, Bohemia, Czech Republic

Superb rough and cut set of aragonite from this classic Bohemian locality. The aragonite crystal, which measures 6.1 x 1.5 x 1.2 cm, is transparent and almost completely gem quality. It has a sharp termination and only has a few edge nibbles; otherwise, it is of superb quality for the locality. The cut stone, faceted by Nancy Pritchard in a custom cut, weighs 18.52 carats. The cutting is impeccable, with sharp facet joins and an incredibly brilliant appearance for the material. Photograph by Joe Budd.

SCPA003 - Calcite (Twinned) - Broken Heel Pocket, York Building Supply Quarry, York, York County, Pennsylvania

Excellent 4.7 cm twinned crystal of iron-stained calcite from this famous Pennsylvania locality.

As is typical for this pocket, there are a few minor nicks/bruises to the calcite as shown in the photos. Please note that the color is lighter in person - the camera's color rendition makes it appear more orange. Collected in 2009 by Skip Colflesh. Ex.
