Calcite, Hubei province, China
description: 5" across Ex Professor Stephen Smale collection. Acquired via a trade with Steve in October 2010 during a visit to his home in Hong Kong. In October 2010, this was one of Steve's best five calcite specimens from this locality. The piece consist of lustrous, gemmy, bright yellow crystals on a thin slither of contrasting black earthy matrix. One of the faces on one of the crystals on an end of the specimen is a cleavage face. Despite this, the general quality of this piece is very high.
