At the Ace of Diamonds Mine. Specimen has some matrix attachment on the bottom where it sat on matrix.
This specimen is from a one of a kind find, one specific pocket that was found many years ago, all had this "Calcite Druze" coating the Herkimers. I bought the entire pocket from the commercial miner. This one was one of my favorites in the pocket. Featuring a natural formation of calcite that formed a solid coating around the crystal, while still allowing you to see the shape of the crystal. Usually calcite will form one large singular crystal, in this pocket the calcite formed thousands of individual crystals instead, as it spread out across the surface of the quartz in its gelatinous state.
This Calcite is Fluorescent and Phosphorescent as demonstrated in the video and the series of pictures. The first picture was taken the instant I turned the UV light off after saturating the calcite with the light, showing its phosphorescence. The second picture is the specimen while being saturated with the UV light, showing its fluorescence.
The third one, and all subsequent pictures are the specimen under normal LED lighting. These pictures and videos are all raw captures. Doesn't get much better as far as multi-mineral specimens from our location go. This is a significant find, and it's been in my collection since it was found many years ago.This one goes from my collection to yours and will hold its own with fine minerals from around the world. 100% natural, presented exactly as it was found.
