Calcite crystals to 2.5cm on translucent purple cubes of Fluorite. The smaller Calcites are like gems, and aside from a couple incomplete crystals on the edge, are all undamaged. This is an old piece I've owned for about 45 years.

Isolated, gemmy single Sulfur crystals suspended in light, airy Aragonite. The specimen formed as a floater in the center of a pocket and is different in style than the usual crystals on solid Aragonite that are collected from pocket walls. This was the most aesthetic example (in my opinion) from the find. Crystals reach 1.3cm in diameter and are present on both sides.
