Description:A beautiful light yellow color compressed scalenohedral crystal of Calcite measuring 6.7 cm across is associated with dozens if not hundreds of smaller "jewel-like" compressed, light yellow Calcite crystals which cover very gemmy, soft green colored cuboctahedral Fluorite. There really isn't any matrix, just Fluorite and Calcite, but it's so showy and aesthetic that you don't need matrix, the piece is beautiful on its own. These are great contemporary Chinese specimens that will go down as classics showing superb form with great displayability. Get these while you can becaus they won't last forever, and for the overall quality, this is a very good small cabinet sized display piece of these very attractive Calcites. Valued in the inventory at $1,000.
