Calcite (Pineapple) on Fluorite (Ref: 6.2-306)

Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang, Hunan Province, China
37mm x 32mm x 20mm
minID: KRF-HCG
$290
Almost 20 years ago the Shangbao mine in China encountered some pockets of "pineapple" look Calcites. The best of these were on contrasting Fluorite and had (to my eye anyway) great esthetic appeal. This is a small but perfect example of that find. The color, luster and habit are distinctive for these Calcites and unlike any others from anyplace. The Calcites are transparent and undamaged (a small contact is on the backside, but no damage). A fine small modern classic piece.
