PostPosted: Jul 28, 2019 09:11    Post subject: Calcite  

I just purchased a specimen labeled "Calcite".
There was no more information.

The specimen measures 10 * 8 * 3 cm.
It has elongated calcite Crystals that seem to have a twist.

I took some pictures of the backside, which is purple and green.

Is there anybody who has a clue where this specimen has been mined?

Thanks,
Mathias

Hi Mathias.

A typical combination from the basalts at Irai, Brazil with green Celadonite and Amethyst.

Cheers
Stefan
