Description

So this is something really special - the aragonite formed a group of stalacmites in intense red to orange color on brown-grey matrix. I photographed on image with daylight, the second with backlight - with backlight it looks like carrots. Should be high ranked for aesthetics, for rarity and color! The front-display is perfect, two broken stalacmites back-side.
