Description

Classic Brushy Creek calcite, with typical chalcopyrite and galena.  The calcite is honey yellow coloured and has nice stepped growth patterns.  There is a tiny dink to the edge and the termination as you can see in the close ups, but this is a good example overall. 

Displays nicely on its own standing straight up, or also sits at a roughly 45 degree angle.  The first three pictures were taken in direct sunlight, the remaining two pictures under white LED lighting.

Ex. Donald Stockton (1929 - 2016) with his label and also the label of Kevin E. Davy "Willyama Minerals".
