I’m Selling Rocks!

Display of calcite specimens

These are calcite display pieces that I cut from rock I gathered at that ancient and now dry hot spring near Shoshone, California.

I showed photos and videos of this site on Instagram.

Someone had dug a large pit into a barren hillside, digging out I know not what. But I gathered some of the spoils on the downside of the digging. The rock revealed calcite as it typically forms around hot springs. Similar in some ways to Kokoweef Cavern calcite.

It’s the hot spring you can take with you!

I have one polished piece. It doesn’t look as nice as the unpolished pieces. There is also one rock of rough, waiting for you to cut up.

No plans to sell online because postage is so outrageous. You’d spend half your money on mailing. Sigh.

Best in the West is in Pahrump on the corner of Winery Road and Homestead. Look at the top menu bar for more information.
