Calcite

Specimen # 100799
Mineral: Calcite
Location: Jiepayu Mine (Shimen Mine), Shimen Co., Hunan Province, China
Size: 11.8 x 9.1 x 4.5 cm
Price: $250.00 CAD

Quantity:

These calcite crystals are incredibly glossy, with delicate growth patterns on their faces. The larger crystal is prominently twinned, while the others curiously do not exhibit any twinning. Within the crystal across the bottom, one can see small included red realgar crystals. In excellent condition, with the naked eye no damage to the main crystal and a couple of small chips on lower edge of the bottom crystal - you can find more tiny chips if you seek them out with a loupe - just amazing quality for these. (There is a patch at the bottom in the centre that is re-crystallized, whether it was a contact during formation is hard to say.) This specimen is a floater, formed with no points of attachment to surrounding rock. A beautiful display piece.
