Elmwood Mine, Carthage, Smith County, Tennessee, USA
Golden to almost orange color is the highlight of this pretty (and large!) calcite from the famous Elmwood, Tennessee locality. It shows a perfect scalenohedron on its top portion with a complex termination on the bottom showing many points in parallel. The top termination is gemmy and really catches the light. Once prolific with fluorite and calcite specimens, this area is no longer producing and pieces are harder and harder to find. This piece is quite large, just over 14 cm long. It has a small accessory crystal on its side which adds a nice detail to the piece.
