Byssolite on Oxidized Copper over Calcite
Truly museum worthy! There are only 2 specimens of it's kind to come out of this locale! I'm hoarding the other one for now!
Sparkling Byssolite fibers strewn across flowering dogtooth Calcite with an insane coating of Malachite like oxidized copper patina. Just unbelievable! And it self-stands too!

Fyi per the picture of the back- the edges in the picture look very blue...in person they are much bluer than the frontside of piece but far less blue than in picture
