Calcite - unusual habits with Clinochlore
Nikolaevskly Mine Dal'negorsk
Primorsky Kray, Far Eastern Region, Russia
8.2 x 4.4 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
A complex older Dalngorsk specimen that displays very well from several angles. These Calcites are gemmy clear and some have sharp mushroom like caps on the terminations of Scalenohedrons. The face details and ice-like etching makes these especially impressive in person. In excellent condition as seen, this is not anything typical and certainly a great addition for any Calcite collection or Dalngorsk suite.
