Sold Items

Calcite and Barite    Quirivilca Mine - La Libertad Dept. - Peru
Calcite and Barite for sale click picture to see larger images.

A very unusual Calcite specimen. Pearly, translucent crystals showing stepped growth. Many of the terminations have black sulphide inclusions. This piece was examined by the NHM curator, because I thought it unusually heavy. Possibly it is Baryto Calcite?

Size (l-w-h): 8.5 x 4.5 x 4 cm

SOLD

Calcite and Chalcopyrite    Sweetwater Mine - Reynolds County - Missouri - United States
Calcite and Chalcopyrite for sale click picture to see larger images.

A perfect golden Calcite and rainbow iridescent Chalcopyrite crystals. The multiple colors of chalcopyrite contrasting with the yellow calcite make it an extremely attractive piece. (rephotographed)

Size (l-w-h): 5 x 4 x 3 cm

SOLD

Calcite and Marcasite    Pasto Bueno - Ancash Department - Peru
Calcite and Marcasite for sale click picture to see larger images.

Translucent Calcite scalenohedra with minor Marcasite. Strangely enough, I don't recall seeing a calcite in this form from Peru.

Size (l-w-h): 6 x 6 x 4.5 cm

SOLD

Calcite on Fluorite    Piaotang Mine - Jiangxi Province - China
Calcite on Fluorite for sale click picture to see larger images.

I just love these Piaotang stepped Fluorites, but this one is doubly interesting because of the coating of very unusual Calcite crystals. Bright white, translucent hexagons, very fine, around a millimeter in thickness. The fluorite has clear crystals overlying a vivid turquoise core. Dramatic when back lit.

Size (l-w-h): 6 x 5 x 3 cm

SOLD

Calcite on Sphalerite for sale click picture to see larger images.
