Calcite DT
Our Price: $80.00
From Daye, Hubei (China) - this is truly unusual piece - it's a double terminated Calcite (how often do you see that?!). Height measurement is with it 'lying down.' The photos capture the texture and point definitions. Real collector's item, and great hand held power piece too! This rustic formation (in blue!) of the rare Spinel crystal, hails from the Luc Yen District, Yen Bai Province (of Vietnam). There are hoppered (layered) cubic formations, and flat siding, where it formed, wedged between other stones. Special, unique piece. Extraordinary piece - it's terminated all around - a true starburst and perfect palm piece. It does have some styrofoam material stuck to the bottom, cause it was originally in a display box, glued to show it at a certain angle. I haven't tried too hard to remove that bit of display residue from the bottom, but you could.  It doesn't, ultimately, detract, from the stellar top. Energetically, and collection-wise, it's a rarity. Probably in my collection for 20 years!
So named, because of its etch-termination castle-siding surface (also almost like an extended wizard's hat). Pretty pristine points, with some breakage along one of the side points. Quite unusual - in additional to the phenomenal (and rare) crystallization of green Quartz - we have a harmonious 'bouquet' that expands (in this case, very subtly) from the base with angular points, and a symphony of cathedral terminations all up the sides. The root of one of the side crystals is broken off. So named, because of its etch-termination castle-siding surface. Pretty pristine points. Quite unusual - in additional to the phenomenal (and rare) crystallization of green Quartz - we have a harmonious 'bouquet' that expands (in this case, very subtly) from the base with angular points, and a symphony of cathedral terminations all up the sides. You can see the two areas of irregularity photo 1: a little nibble on the bottom 5th, and a color irregularity at the bottom of the top 5th.
