Item Description

Elmwood Calcites are considered among the world's best by many collectors for their sharp shape and amazing contrast to sphalerite matrix, and this small-cabinet combination piece well-represents the beauty and quality that you can find from there. The translucent, doubly-terminated Calcite is 5.3 cm tip-to-tip, twinned, and it sits majestically on a matrix of intergrown, "Ruby Jack" Sphalerite crystals. The pics will tell you all you need to know about the choice aesthetics of this piece, which is so nicely balanced.
