Willemite and Calcite from the Nelley James Mine (Miller Canyon) in Arizona

There are several very nice multi-color specimens from the Miller Canyon area here on the 'Bow, but none of plain-Jane, vanilla willemite calcite. So, since I'm taking pics, and this is a pretty nice one, I figured I would post it. Nothing special - but very representative of the material from this area - quite different from the classic Franklin red/green.
