Willemite, Calcite from Puttapa, Australia

A nice small cabinet specimen from the Puttapa zinc mine in Australia, about 3" long. The UV image is 30W SW plus 30W MW. The MW brings out the yellow color which is sometimes found in these rocks. Photographed with a 60mm macro lens at F32 ISO100 8k color temp.
