Calcite
Berry Materials Corp. Quarry (North Vernon Plant), North Vernon, Jennings Co., Indiana
28 x 27 x 19mm

A beautiful example of lustrous and rather gemmy, honey-colored calcite from Indiana.  When it comes to American calcite, the Elmwood Mine in Tennessee seems to get all the attention, but the Midwestern part of the country is full of quarries and mines that produce a wide range of calcite habits.  Specimens from the Berry Materials Quarry are among the most distinct, with a slightly rounded appearance (as opposed to the more elongated scalenohedrons or robs you see everywhere else.) Along with the twinned crystals fro the Irving Materials Quarry (also in Indiana) these are my favorite American calcites.  This is a particularly good thumbnail, with he crystals aesthetically perched on a bit of matrix, and again, slightly gemmier and somewhat more lustrous than what I'm used to seeing.  There are a couple very minute nicks (tiny white spots) on a couple of the edges, but nothing that substantially detracts from the piece.
