Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.7 x 4.1 cm
Fengjiashan Mine (Daye Copper mine), Edong Mining District, Daye Co., Huangshi Prefecture, Hubei Province, China
A very aesthetic and unique, "pagoda-style," calcite specimen from recent finds at the Daye Mine of China. A sharp, highly lustrous, hematite-tinted, 4.2 cm, hexagonal, "pokerchip," crowns the 3-sided, stair-stepped scalenohedron. The interesting goethite plate, at the base, is a nice accent and looks like an emblem or plaque. This very fine calcite specimen is complete all-around and is very nearly pristine. Ex.
