SMR02 Quartz and Calcite incl. Hedenbergite
Huanggang Mine, Hexigten Banner (Keshiketeng Co.), Ulanhad League (Chifeng Prefecture), Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China
18.2x 12.7x 10.3 cm
$3000

A beautiful example of hedenbergite included quartz, crowning a pair of calcite aggregates composed of hundreds of tabular calcite crystals, also colored light green by hedenbergite inclusions.

The quartz crystals are entirely damage free.  As you can see in the image where I am holding the specimen, a part of the matrix is broken off on the side, but this is not noticeable when positioned for display, (for example, as shown to the right of this description)

A very unusual and aesthetic piece from a recent find, the only one that really caught my eye.
