Item Description

An attractive cabinet sized piece of this material that came out in the late 2000s from Chenzhou. The piece features a coverage of sharp, lustrous, gemmy, pseudo-pyritohedral, very light straw colored crystals on Quartz matrix. The specimen is in great shape overall, and displays very well. The largest crystal measures 1.6 cm across, and would certainly make a good addition to a worldwide Calcite suite, or a collection of Chinese minerals. I have not seen many of these around, and this is one of the better pieces I have offered in the auctions in while.
