Calcite, Bethel Level, Annabel Lee Mine, Ozark-Mahoning Company, Harris Creek District, Southern Illinois Miniature 3.5 x 4.5 x 6 cm $100. SOLD
Divergent spray of prismatic calcite with low-angle rhomb terminations. True prismatic calcite is rare from the district as nearly all are typically steep scalenohedrons. The North-End of the Annabel Lee Mine was all on the Bethel Level and as such it produced a unique and very recognizable assemblage. These calcites mostly herald from the late 1980s in this case c. 1988-1989. In excellent condition and a fine miniature.
