OKI-172

This is closer to the correct color.

OKI-172     Calcite “Clam Shell”    along bank of the Indian River, Natural Bridge, New York.  A short lived locality which is known to few.  The specimens of calcite, like this one, actually do look very much like clam shells!  3.7 x 3.4 x 3.1 cm overall with a low luster (common to all the specimen found at this surface exposure).  Translucent cream colored piece which leans to the ugly side but is an unusual find for the collector specializing in East Coast material of NYS specimens.  These are actually quite rare and this is the only one I can ever remember acquiring and being able to offer for sale.  40$
