Twinned Calcite on Sphalerite
stock #8.1-270
Elmwood Mine, Carthage
Tennessee, United States
12 x 10 CM (cabinet)
price: $950


Perfect jewel-like amber cognac color calcites (largest is 7.7 CM) set on a dark red to black matrix of crystalized sphalerite. No damage and only one tiny contact on one of the smaller calcites, this is a pristine piece that has top notch luster. The main crystal is the sort of twin sometimes described as a "frog" where one half of the twinned pair develops selectively and makes a froglike crystal. An Elmwood classic that is far better than you could usually expect in this price range.
Calcite
stock #6.2-057
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
9x5.5CM (cabinet)
price: $375


A single sharp, gemmy calcite crystal that has a light amber color and is in outstanding condition. Great form and luster, the clarity at the tip is very good. Shimen has produced some very fine calcites, among the world's best they are still a bargain compared with most other locations.
Calcite with minor realgar
stock #6.2-064
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
14.5x13.5x11 CM (cabinet)
price: $485


A substantial cluster of fine calcites in very good condition and with great translucence and some transparency. The largest crystal is 13 CM and the color is a light yellow to amber ranging to white. A good sized cabinet piece this has several possible display sides.
Calcite with minor Realgar
stock #5.1-083
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
17x13 cm (cabinet)
price: $1200


A perfect condition large (11.5 cm) twin calcite sits esthetically on top of a mound of smaller calcites and intermingled tiny realgar crystals. All on a calcite matrix, a great example of the best quality from this find, the smaller crystals have distinctive realgar phantoms. A very attractive large cabinet piece!
Calcite with realgar
stock #5.1-085.3
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
10x7.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


A delicate, thin, tapering (7.9CM) single calcite rises above the smaller crystals. Gemmy in places and clear enough to clearly show the bright red realgar crystals inside. A very tiny flaw at the tip is only visible from one side. Even so, this is a top display calcite at a reasonable price.
