Danburite With Calcite
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.6 x 2.4 cm
Charcas, San Luis Potosi, Mexico
Ex. Richard Heck
A glassy and gemmy, pink danburite crystal, measuring 4.8 cm in length, is surrounded by a halo of lustrous and translucent, faintly yellow calcite crystals to 1 cm. The danburite, which is limpid and super gemmy at the termination, exhibits a rich pink color (quite rare from Charcas). THIS IS A SUPERB miniature of way higher than normal quality, and just has a "sparkle" to it that so few possess. It seems a premium price for a "single danburite" and it is, indeed, a relatively high price for a smaller danburite specimen. But it is worth it, in my book
