Calcite from Eminence, MO

Self collected by private invitation to a local calcite mine on June 12, 2016. It was a dangerous environment. We collapsed a section of the wall about 12 foot wide by 25 foot tall, probably 50 tons. All was safe and the finds were amazing... this one is sort of red, white, and blue.
