For sale is a gorgeous calcite specimen from Red Dome mine, Qld. First I have to say this specimen is way way finer than the pics indicate, its just so hard to photograph, such water clear crystals, with such high surface reflections. This is a superb calcite from the Red Dome mine. The mine produced a small number of these exquisitely clear, colorless calcites. Some of the crystals are twinned, having very subtle re-entrance angles. Not clearly seen in the pics is that the tan colored back is completely crystalized with high luster as the front. These came from a small find at this famous mine, way better know for its world class cuprite crystals, but these calcites were instantly recognized as class material and rapidly disappeared into collections world wide. Rarely seen on the market today, these are probably the best gem calcites ever found in Australia. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
