Here's an excellent, double-terminated calcite crystal froup from the historic Elmwood Mine in Smith Co., Tennessee. I found this piece at the Tucson Gem Rock and Mineral Show in 2014 on the tables of a wholesale dealer who had some good crystals from the 2013 discoveries for sale. After being closed for several years, the mine re-opened briefly, then closed again in fall 2015, due to plummeting prices for zinc. The termaintions on this fine specimen are a rich golden orange, and they are very gemmy. This is a very good exmple of the fine material from this classic locality.
