Calcite -Pineapple habit, on Quartz with Fluorite and Dolomite (Ref: 5.1-074)

Shangbao Pyrite Mine, Leiyang, Hunan Province, China
83mm x 53mm x 38mm
minID: FV6-A2Q
$280
The distinctive "pineapple" style Calcite from Shangbao came out sporadically in the 2000-2008 era, this is a very choice example of the habit. Set on a matrix of sparkling Quartz the addition of a few scattered purple Fluorites adds extra contrast. In fine condition as seen, the terminations of the Calcites are transparent and the body of the prism is more milky, all with the "pineapple color". Top Shangbao Fluorites are now regarded as some of the worlds best (and most expensive). 15 years ago at the mine the Calcites were more expensive from the miners than Fluorites because they were more rare and hard to extract intact. Times change.
