Orpiment on Calcite (Ref: 4.2-311)

Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
64mm x 53mm x 42mm
minID: CJA-N9G
$230
Orange to yellow Orpiment crystals reaching 3.3 CM on a matrix of Calcite and Orpiment. Vintage 2004, from the once prolific finds at the Shimen mine, these have now disappeared from the market. This matrix has a crack that seems to be stable but is noted as these are very delicate specimens. The Orpiment crystals tend to be a darker red-orange close to the terminations, and are translucent in strong light. Now that the mine is closed these are recognized as modern classics.
