A really nice two generation calcite specimen from the Daye Copper Mine. Lustrous translucent crystals of calcite with small scalenohedral calcites. The color of this specimen because of hematite inclusions. An attractive calcite specimen from the early days of Daye Mine. The second generation calites are spread about on the very 3-dimensional, sculptural, mounded matrix on this very showy piece. We obtained this from a Chinese dealer who attended the Gemboree at Bathurst about 12 years ago. I have had it in storage since that time. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
