Fengjiashan Mine (Daye Copper Mine), Edong District, Daye County, Huangs, Hubei, China
A wonderfully displayed gemmy calcite (4.2 CM across)sits on a small shard of matrix that is dusted with smaller gemmy calcites as well. Great form and condition, the calcite has some glass clear faces and interior and others with a very light frosting. This looks great from any angle, from one side looking like an old English Calcite and from others like a modern Dalngorsk piece. This is from the Daye mine in Hubei, China which has produced a lot of great calcites, but this one is distinctly different than others we have seen.
