Rucks' Pit, near Fort Drum, Okeechobee County, Florida, USA
This is a large, single mercenaria clam on some dark gray micritic limestone matrix, with golden yellow calcite crystals. The calcite is fluorescent blue-green under shortwave and longwave UV light. Very aestetic specimen, lustrous and perfectly crystallized with three-dimensional construction. No significant damages to report. This fascinating piece reminds of an open mouth of a dragon with pointed fangs.
