Calcite and Realgar
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
9.1 x 6.3 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $225


From the incredible finds of 2002, this piece has a big gemmy lustrous compound twin Calcite crystal that stands nicely on a partial Calcite that makes a perfect base. The front side is dusted with micro xls of opaque white calcite and some brilliant red, gemmy crystals of Realgar that reach 2 CM. There is some chipping on this piece so it is very affordably priced as a result. Still it displays well and has good visual quality.
