Can you help make this a better article? What good localities have we missed? Can you supply pictures of better specimens than those we show here? Can you give us more and better information about the specimens from these localities? Can you supply better geological or historical information on these localities?

Here will go general remarks about the calcite from this China. Below are some url's to some of the better Chinese calcite specimens here on Mindat that can be considered for inclusion in the article. These, in most cases are just for temporary use until we can get images of the much better specimens that are almost certainly out there. We should also consider that there are probably localities out there with fine specimens that are not even mentioned on Mindat. Also in some instances there are sometimes pictures on Mindat, of specimens from a locality, but they were so ratty that I did not include them here, but there may also be really good specimens from there that we should talk about in this article.

Rock, thanks for starting this article with this Calcite/Stibnite picture.

Please note that after a discussion we had on the messageboard last week about the locality that this is the right locality [www.mindat.org] for this Calcite/Stibnite. So the Xikuangshan Sb deposit is right and not the Xikuangshan Mine.

Best regards,
Mario Pauwels
