Dimensions: 9 cm x 8 cm x 7.5 cm
Largest Crystal Size: 9 cm

Obtained in 2007 from the Little Gallery and Rock Shop, who got it from an unknown miner who would not reveal the location. Further research has shown it came from a mine in Marble Falls. Huber Engineering Materials maintains an underground mine there for high grade calcium carbonate. This mine is a double adit into a hillside south of Marble Falls, along US Highway 281 S. They are mining the Marble Falls Limestone, which is exposed in the area. They refine the limestone for pharmaceutical grade calcium carbonate.
