Calcite, Hematite
Large Cabinet, 17.5 x 15.5 x 8.4 cm
Leiping Mine, Leiping, Guiyang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
An excellent, large cabinet calcite specimen. These crystals, up to 3.1 cm across, are unusually transparent for the find, so you can very clearly see the super, star-like, hematite phantoms inside. They also have superb glassy luster. These Leiping calcites are distinctive for their pretty, razor-sharp, symmetrical pyramidal terminations as well. Just an outstanding calcite specimen from a finished find of a couple of years ago.
