A remarkable and strange Calcite formed of spherical clusters of flat crystals. The balls are connected in a chain and these are covered with bright sparkling Quartz in tiny doubly terminated clear crystals much like Herkimer Diamonds. A scattering of Hairlike Actinolite crystals are seen with magnification impaling both the Quartz and Calcite. Choice and in excellent condition, the esthetics are impressive. Another of the mineral wonders from the incredible deposits at Huangang.
