NF625 Calcite
Berry Materials Corp. Quarry (North Vernon Plant), North Vernon, Jennings Co., Indiana
5.4x 5.1x 3.0 cm

A choice group of honey colored calcite crystals from the Berry Materials quarry.  These are probably some of my favorite American calcites, both for their unusual, generally rounded form (vs. the rhombs and scalenohedrons that you find everywhere else) and their spectacular luster.

This one sits on a sliver of matrix.  There is only one tiny (~1mm) sub-surface nick near the top, other than that it's perfect.
