Double-terminated Calcite crystal with attached and included Stibnite. The Calcite would be fairly transparent if not for all the Stibnite inclusions. Old specimen from the Chuck trantham collection. The label only indicates a locality of 'Mexico' and that is was acquired in 1997.

Pristine cluster of golden metallic Marcasite crystals on matrix. The crystal group is 3cm wide with individual twinned crystals to 1cm in size. I understand these were found between the mid 1970s and the mid 1980s and collecting here is now prohibited because the site is now a natural reserve. Ex.
