Mariposa (butterfly) calcite has been popular with collectors attracted to the dramatic phantoms on these pieces for years. They used to come out in quantity from the Mina Buena Tierra in Santa Eulalia, Mexico, which closed in 2011. This is a very sculptural and damage-free example of this material, featuring gem-clear dogtooth calcite crystals with sharp, unusually distinct blood red phantoms inside.
