Cabinet, 11.4 x 7.8 x 7.8 cm
Lianzhou City (Lian Xian), Lianzhou Co., Qingyuan Prefecture, Guangdong Province, China
A fabulous cabinet calcite specimen from China and the Ed David Collection. A striking, 6.0 cm, translucent, color-zoned, poker chip calcite dominates this aesthetic piece. But, it's the amazing cluster of graduated size, parallel-growth, poker chip crystals in front of the large poker chips that makes this an extraordinary piece. And the poker chips rest on large scalenohedral calcite crystals. Nearly pristine. Moderate orange fluorescence.
