The combination of bright golden calcite crystals that gleam in the light with a million year old fossilized Pleistocene clamshell is unique, found only at the well-known Ruck's Pit locality in Florida (now closed).  A specimen that is both a mineral and a fossil is indeed rare, and this one is especially attractive.  The fossilized clamshell looks like what we New Englanders call a quohog.  The shell has a large opening on one side revealing the interior, that is lined with crystals. Fascinating!
