T1519 Calcite

5.4x 3.4x 3.3 cm
$340

A pair of intertwined calcite crystals, from a find made several years ago.  Pieces from this find were notable for their interesting selectively frosted terminations, and transparent lateral faces, through which complex inclusions could be seen. Like virtually all other pieces from this find, this one can only be displayed from the front, the the back is a mixture of etching and bits of matrix.

As the prices of Chinese minerals keep climbing, I ended up doing a deal to purchase a very large amount of material-- this way I can offer pieces at prices below what the Chinese dealers themselves were originally asking-- this is one such piece.
