Calcite
Large Cabinet, 16.8 x 13.4 x 6.9 cm
Irai, Alto Uruguai region, Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil
SOLD
Irai was known for these superb, gorgeous calcites, and then the supply seemed to dry up. There were hardly any available at the last year's Tucson show, and they were overpriced, so we bought none. Then, to our surprise, we found a cache of new specimens with one dealer at the small Spring Denver Show last year, and cherry-picked all the best ones, and sold them. Then they disappeared again - until finally, a contact brought us the only specimens we saw at this year's Tucson Show, and we bought the entire lot - the good, the bad and the ugly - in order to get the good ones - like this large one, with superb crystals to 6 cm in length, on a pretty bed of smaller calcites with the dove-gray underying mineral showing through to provide contrast for the creamy large calcites! 16.8 x 13.4 x 6.9cm
