This beautiful matrix miniature hosts a 20 x 7 x 6 mm gem emerald crystal perched on contrasting white calcite, from the emerald mines of Colombia. This is not repaired, and not placed in the matrix, as you can clearly see the calcite grew around the crystal. At 2 cm, the crystal is good-sized. The color is intense and deep, vibrantly green. The association with crystallized calcite, instead of with rock or massive calcite matrix, though, really makes this specimen.
