Stacks of flat, hexagonal Calcite crystals with an attractive pink color. Called poker chip because of the shape. A bit like and old Mexican specimen except the color is much more attractive. The crystals have a glossy luster which is much higher on the thin edges which also exhibit a deeper color which enhances the three dimensional appearance. Under both SW and LW the specimen fluoresces a strong orange color. Although not visible in the photos, there is a bit of massive, off-white colored Calcite beneath the poker chip crystals - meaning they are second generation growth.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
