Most of the pockets on the Bethel Level of the Annabel Lee Mine tended to be small and "tight", however an exceptionally large pocket of calcites was found circa 1986 that produced a number of superlative specimens. This is a fine example from that sensational find. Specimen displays well from a variety of angles. A few tipped crystals and small contact point on one edge.
