Calcite crystals from China are certainly not rare, with thousands of specimens continuing to pour onto the market from China's hundreds of mining operations. This piece has a pleasing architectural quality that sets it apart however, with beautiful selective overgrowths of hematite-included calcite and a nicely-placed focal crystal. An aesthetic calcite from an important Chinese locale, the Leiping mine. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
