    CALCITE
    Nikolaevskiy Mine, Dal'negorsk
    Kavalerovo Mining District
    Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia
    10.23 x 6.49 x 3.34 inches (26 x 16.5 x 8.5 cm)


    Here is a major specimen no matter what the criteria. This is a large and significant example of creamy white "flattened" Calcite from the universally respected locality of Dal'negorsk in Russia. This "rose" of the carbonate mineral features concentric layers of stacked crystals with central "tips" resulting in the obvious flower pattern. At well over 10 inches (25.4 cm), this is a massive specimen and a high quality representation of the unique form. The crystals, atop some metallic material, display a "pinkish" hue.


    Estimate: $500 - up.
