A 4.0 cm, gemmy and lustrous, honey-colored calcite crystal aesthetically set on blue and purple fluorite cabinet matrix richly sprinkled with smaller calcite crystals from recent finds at the Shangbao Mine of China. The calcite crystal has stout, hexagonal form and this combination has been in much demand, since their discovery a couple of years ago.
