    Calcite with Hematite
    Daye iron mine, Tieshan District
    Huangshi, Hubei

    From the same locality as the other Hematite included Calcite pieces from Daye in this catalog, this one offers a surreal, almost extraterrestrial appearance, as the well-formed crystals display a quite unusual tiger striping as mustard banding covers portions of each of the many interconnected geometric forms which are nicely shaped and fused into a massive, mountainous cluster. A highly aesthetic specimen as the visual impact is surreal and singular to put it mildly, this rocky mass has one major and a few minor crystallizations without the internal bands with a unique root beer coloration. The added bonus of this specimen is the somewhat coloration triangular shape on the bottom of the otherwise whitish matrix. No real noticeable visible damage is apparent, and the faces of the crystal forms reflect light very well.
    Measurements: 6.69 x 6.10 x 3.15 inches (17.00 x 15.50 x 8.00 cm)
