    CALCITE
    Verkhnii Mine, Dal'negorsk
    Kavalerovo Mining District, Primorskiy Kray
    Far-Eastern Region, Russia
    8.85 x 5.51 x 4.92 inches (22.5 x 14 x 12.5 cm)


    Another classic and significant locality, Dal'negorsk, Russia has provided this extremely sizable specimen of Calcite which features an unusual phenomenon of multiple growth phases of which there are at least two or possibly more. This light, sandy brown stunner is an incredible lattice of interwoven crystals looking more like a model of something out of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy than what is simply a truly exceptional and definitely very collectible fine mineral specimen. This is a monster - but a beautiful one.
