Catalogue Note

Aragonite is a carbonate mineral likened to a bouquet of explosions of fireworks or flowers. It is an interesting and attractive mineral which forms interesting habits and can have a soft pretty colour. Its modes of formation and relationship to calcite are both curious and intriguing. The current lot is a very good and exemplary concretion.
