Calcite on Quartz
Large Cabinet, 22.2 x 14.0 x 9.0 cm
Bor Mine, Dalnegorsk, Primorskiy Kray, Russia

A LARGE cabinet specimen featuring translucent calcites to almost 4 inches, 9 cm in size, isolated in a matrix of coated quartz crystals. The crystals show good luster and very sharp form. The specimen is in fine shape, with just a couple of very unobtrusive contacts. Sawn on back to remove from the matrix. A big, showy and dramatic Russian specimen and very unusual in its association!
