Edward Bayley's Photo Gallery

Y7L-R2PCalcite

Rucks pit, Fort Drum, Okeechobee Co., Florida, USA

Dimensions: 7.8 cm x 4.5 cm x 3.5 cm

Busycon rucksorum fossil partially recrystallized in calcite. This is one of the earliest specimens in my collection. The recrystallized Busycon fossils are less common than the recrystallized Mercenaria clams.

EF7-70CCalcite, Sphalerite

Cumberland Mine, Central Tennessee Ba-F-Pb-Zn Mining District, Smith Co., Tennessee, USA

Dimensions: 10 cm x 9 cm x 3 cm

A pristine gem double terminated calcite crystal on sphalerite and barian celestine from the Cumberland Mine. With a loupe it is possible to see tiny purple fluorites on the barian celestine.

PN7-U7KCalcite

Thomasville Crushed Stone Quarry, Thomasville, Jackson Township, York Co., Pennsylvania, USA

Dimensions: 21 cm x 16 cm x 9 cm

A large cabinet cluster from the Thomasville Quarry. This quarry is well-known for its twins. Sometimes you will see these flatter crystals with striations on the terminal faces twinned along the c-axis like these, and sometimes you will see scalenohedrons twinned on the c-axis as well. I think of the York quarries as the calcite specimen capital of Pennsylvania, especially when it comes to the big specimens and showpieces. Ex. Bruce and Dale Wadleigh collection.

EHW-64RCalcite, Marcasite

Berry Materials Corp. Quarry, North Vernon, Jennings Co., Indiana, USA

Dimensions: 17 cm x 13.5 cm x 4 cm

Calcite on limestone from the Berry Materials Quarry (former Paul Frank Quarry). This is one of the largest and finest examples I have seen from this locality. The largest crystal is about 7cm across. This is an absolute dream of a specimen. Ex. Albert J. Jehle, Ex. Doug Toland. Handwritten label says "Al Jehle, Philadelphia, PA 1969."

QQX-V5XCalcite, Chalcopyrite

Multiple photos available
Sweetwater Mine, Ellington, Viburnum Trend Mining District, Reynolds Co., Missouri, USA

Dimensions: 14 cm x 10 cm x 7 cm

A 14mm double terminated "black calcite" from the Sweetwater Mine. No damage, side crystal is contacted. Like many of the specimens from this find, there is great luster and the curious tendency for one end of the crystal to be more transparent and golden in color. This example does not have the parallel growth that many of the others have.

WWQ-QDUCalcite, Chalcopyrite

Multiple photos available
Sweetwater Mine, Ellington, Viburnum Trend Mining District, Reynolds Co., Missouri, USA

Dimensions: 27 cm x 11 cm x 8 cm

A large parallel growth DT calcite cluster from Sweetwater Mine. The dark, almost black color is due to various layers of chalcopyrite phantoms. These inclusions give the specimen a similar color to those collected in the Brushy Creek Mine in the 1990s, except with better luster. These specimens are very sculptural and have a level of parallel growth that makes them more spectacular than many of the older specimens I have seen.

M1L-C5XCalcite

Rucks pit, Fort Drum, Okeechobee Co., Florida, USA

Dimensions: 10 cm x 7 cm x 3.5 cm

Calcite in Mercenaria permagna fossil. This specimen was collected when the pit itself was open, not from the dumps. These re-crystallized fossils are often said to be between 1 and 2 million years old.

VYX-G1HCalcite

Joplin Field, Tri-State Mining District, Jasper Co., Missouri, USA

Dimensions: 16 cm x 8.5 cm x 4.5 cm

Multigenerational calcite on chert from Joplin Field. These calcites remind me of caterpillars or popcorn.

Washington County Aggregates Quarry, Potosi, Potosi Barite Mining District, Washington Co., Missouri, USA

Dimensions: 5.5 cm x 2.5 cm x 3 cm

Calcite on Baryte from the Washington County Aggregates Quarry. This is from a small find of perhaps fewer than 100 specimens from around 2013.
