Description

Here is a fantastic museum specimen with white/translucent dog tooth calcite.

It is undamaged except for some minor damages along the edges, but even the edges look good on this one, and it is very rare to find such big specimens that are so complete. This one was in my father’s main collection, but due to space, I need to let it go.

In the pictures, I have laid it down, but for display, I would probably raise it up (it stands naturally by itself).

Also, the backside is very nice, especially the Hematite. You will see both Calcite and Stilbite on the backside (where there are some damages to the calcite).

I am not sure when it was collected, but I strongly believe it is from the 1990s or 2000s when my father was most active in collecting Swedish minerals.
