Calcite (heart twin) on Quartz
Daye Co., China
Daye Co., Huangshi Prefecture, Hubei Province, China
A fantastic, gem heart twin calcite on a matrix of drusy quartz from Daye Co., Hubei Province, China! The calcite is just a jewel, very gemmy, and highly lustrous. It’s a completely equant twin and perched upon of the matrix perfectly, making for stunning display. The quartz matrix has some unknown red and green inclusions that really make the calcite stand out and add a splash of color to the specimen. The calcite measures 3.7cm across and has only one small knick on the backside that is hardly visible. You have to really look to see it. It’s in great condition otherwise. This is one of the most striking heart twin calcite specimens I have ever seen from any locality! It comes with a custom acrylic base.
