Calcite in Mercenaria
Availability: 1 in stock
I have seen many of these and this one is particularly fine. The shell is obvious without being overwhelming. The clay-like “cement” fills the back and from the front it is mostly surrounded by amber calcites. The feature attraction is the central crystal flower that is bright and gemmy. Noted as collected in 1958. Ex Kenny Gay collection.
