This is an absolutely gorgeous connoisseur-level miniature, featuring two gemmy, complex, twinned calcite crystals perched up on chrysocolla, from the Mashamba West Mine, an unusual calcite locality. It is a Marshall Sussman specimen, formerly in the collection of Tana Daugharthy. In excellent condition, a couple of very small nicks, minor in the context of this superb piece. The crystals on this one are simply exquisite.
