Quartz coating Calcite on Quartz / Locality - Camp Bird Mine, near Ouray, Ouray County, Colorado


Shipping to United States: Free

The famous Camp Bird Mine, which started operating in 1896, produced over 5 million Troy ounces of Gold and Silver combined in nearly a century. This locality not only produced native metals, but literally thousands of beautiful crystallized display specimens, including some of the best sulfides from Colorado, but it also produced some wonderful non-metallic specimens. This piece is loaded with dozens of pinkish-brown scalenohedra of Calcite which literally have Quartz on all sides. First, the Calcites are coated with a micro “druse” of sugary Quartz crystals which are sitting on lustrous, milky Quartz crystal matrix. Great quality overall with virtually no damage. Very unusual for the locality, and certainly worth picking up if you’re a Colorado collector.
