Calcite with minor Realgar
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture, Hunan, China
A perfect condition large (11.5 cm) twin calcite sits esthetically on top of a mound of smaller calcites and intermingled tiny realgar crystals. All on a calcite matrix, a great example of the best quality from this find, the smaller crystals have distinctive realgar phantoms. A very attractive large cabinet piece!
