5.5" Free-Standing, Banded Zebra Calcite - Mexico
This is a 5.5" wide, free-standing banded zebra calcite section. It features alternating bands of black, brown, white and golden calcite/aragonite. It can be displayed in multiple orientations.
Zebra calcite is a banded formation of calcite/aragonite (CaCO3) that comes out of Mexico. It can also be found on the market labeled as "banded aragonite", "zebra aragonite" and "phantom banded calcite". It often features alternating layers of white, black, brown and golden yellow calcite. The color changes are a result of layered deposition in which different impurities resulted in varied coloration over time.
