Specimen # 100283
Mineral: Calcite
Location: Tonglushan Mine, Daye Co., Hubei Province, China
Size: 9.1 x 6.3 x 4.6 cm


Sharp, elegant scalenohedral calcite crystal on matrix from Daye, China. The otherwise colourless crystal has an orange-red central zone which gives the whole crystal a tint of colour. No damage visible without magnification/searching – it’s in excellent condition. Other minor crystals on the specimen give added interest. The large calcite crystal measures 3.3 cm. Nice!
