Calcite and Aragonite, Helvetia Mine, Arizona


Patterns of bright red fluorescing calcite with pockets of aragonite make these pieces interesting and eye-catching. Also, there appears to be two types of calcite, as one seems to fluoresce a burnt orange in midwave, while the other remains red. A few dots of hyalite can be found as well. Shown in SW, MW, LW and natural.
