Locality: Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith Co., Tennessee

Specimen Size: 15.0 x 13.8 x 10.5 cm (cabinet)

There is a some damage on this specimen near the bottom of the piece were it was detached from the host rock.

This is one of the RARE instances where we actually charge for domestic shipping on a specimen.

Calcite on matrix

Locality: Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith Co., Tennessee

Specimen Size: 22.6 x 18.0 x 10.4 cm (large cabinet)
Largest crystal: 17.0 cm.


For the size, this is a dramatic Calcite specimen from any mine, not just Elmwood. It features a very good size, hefty, sharp, lustrous, translucent, scalenohedral, golden color Calcite crystal with a few smaller Calcite crystals perched on matrix. Now it must be noted that there is a bare spot on the piece where a now missing Calcite once grew. Also, the large Calcite crystal has a contact at the base where it was most likely removed from the pocket wall. The piece can be displayed in a manner that allows the damage to be less distracting. Obviously, if this piece were perfect, the price would be more than ten times the wholesale value listed, but if you want a rather large, flashy, aesthetic, colorful display specimen, and you can live with the fact that this is not perfect, this one is for you. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the size and weight of this specimen, we will be charging a $20 fee for U.S. customers to ship this piece. This is one of the RARE instances where we actually charge for domestic shipping on a specimen.
