206 Realgar and Calcite



Shimen Mine, Hunan Province, China



Lustrous transparent red realgar crystals up to 18 mm long in combination with lustrous calcite crystals and tufts of white picropharmacolite crystals up to 1 mm long. The lustrous calcite crystals are translucent with a fine striped structure on the faces. Some of the realgar crystals are incomplete which may be visible, but does not quite draw attention. A wonderful piece all in all!
