This is a beautiful twinned pseudohexagonal crystal of WITHERITE from a classic locality - the world-famous Minerva Mine #1, in Hardin County, southern Illinois. The mines were closed in 1993, so the source of this fantastic material is gone forever! This specimen comes out of my personal collection, and I acquired it in a trade in the early 1990s, while the mine was still open.
