Chenzhong, Hunan Prov., China
19 cm tall x 27 cm wide
This calcite came from a pocket found 10 years ago. We were very fortunate to obtain the three top examples.
The luster on this piece is glass like and the clarity is amazing for such large crystals. The dusting of chalcopyrite gives it the appearance of being sprinkled with 24K gold. This specimen ranks amongst the finest calcites in the world. This small group has no peers.
This piece has recently been reacquired by us from the collector who had purchased it from us.
