OKQ-703

OKQ-703      Calcite      Dal'negorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District, Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia.  This is an impossibly complex, water clear, high luster calcite floater.  I see one small rib on one corner when using magnification, otherwise it is in outstanding condition.  6 x 5.1 x 4.2 cm.  The images do a poor job of showing the clarity of this specimen.  $35

 

 

 

 

OKQ-704

OKQ-704      Calcite      Dal'negorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District, Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia.  This is schalenohedral crystal has two beautifully twinned, water clear, high luster calcites attached to its base.  6 x 3.2 x 2.1 cm.  The piece is damage-free and even has what appears to be two small sprays of anhydrite in its base.  The images does a poor job of showing the clarity of the twins on this specimen.  $50

 

 

 

 

OKQ-705

OKQ-705      Calcite      Dal'negorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District, Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia.  This is an impossibly complex, transparent, high luster calcite floater.  It appears to be a complex rhomb that is sceptered by a very flat rhombohedral form. 6.5 x 4.6 x 4 cm.  Zero damage.  $40

 

 

 

 

OKQ-706

OKQ-706      Calcite with Anhydrite casts     Dal'negorsk, Kavalerovo Mining District, Primorskiy Kray, Far-Eastern Region, Russia.  This is a complex, water clear, high luster calcite floater.  There is no damage to the specimen.  It has a sandy white group of calcite schalenohedral crystals as a central inclusion (these are impossible to see in the photos).  6.2 x 5 x 2.9 cm.  The images does a poor job of showing the clarity of this specimen.  Beautiful in-hand.  $45
