In 2009, Ruck's Pit was producing fabulous fossil clam specimens with an unusual twist: they had golden yellow calcite nestled inside! The quarry they came from closed in 2010, and though it re-opened to collecting, it never produced anything that matched the quality of the earliest material. This piece is a superb example, featuring a large 3.8" clamshell set in matrix, with an open "mouth" that shows some beautiful gem clear golden calcite crystals concentrated at one end of the piece. There is no damage to this fine example of this unique material.
