Object Description Sample of white massive calcite with many small, bright gray, metallic, foliated inclusions of molybdenite, and many hexagonal crystals of coppery mica, probably phlogopite. No franklinite is apparent as suggested by the historical documentation. This sample is included in the Catalogue of the Collection of Minerals in the College of S. C. and can be found on page 98. It was a part of the college's original acquisition from Thomas Cooper in 1821.
