    Fengjiashan Mine , Daye Co.
    Huangshi, Hubei

    While, like Quartz, the mineral Calcite is rather common, examples like this world-class offering are anything but typical. A very special piece from an "old" find, this exquisite, doubly-terminated single crystal offers coloration more like Kunzite, with a distinctive purplish hue quite unusual for such material. The massive and sensational crystal measures nearly 7 inches (18 cm) from tip to tip. The layered example boasts lots of vitreous luster and a glassy nature. This example is embedded in a complex matrix of rock and crystal, with finer Quartz points providing a sharp tenor to the base holding the relatively enormous focal crystal. Out of the Fengjiashan Mine in the Hubei Province, this natural masterpiece presents wonderfully with a rare combination of form and color. The piece is not perfect, but the imperfections are original and not a result of any secondary damage. This is a major specimen sure to entice anyone who appreciates Calcite.
    Measurements: 6.69 x 5.91 x 2.85 inches (17.00 x 15.00 x 7.25 cm)
