For sale is a supberb calcite crystal from Red Dome mine, Qld. Known best for its great cuprite specimens, the Red Dome Mine has also produced a few small pockets of some of Australia’s finest calcites, as can be seen here. These specimens are extraordinarily hard to picture as they are just so gemmy and lustrous. This mine has now been closed for years now, and I would say that the these gem calcites are in even more demand than the outstanding cuprites the mine produced. Ex Geoff Rondello collection, Ex John and Sandy Roe collection, Handorf, S.Aust. 2000. The internal clarity of this calcite is just outstanding. This is a significant Australian calcite. Again this is WAY WAY better than the pics indicate.
