Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
7 x 5.5 x 4.8 CM (cabinet)

A very attractive bright specimen that has become sort of a modern classic from the Realgar Mine at Shimen. The Calcite is milky-white to clear-yellow and glassy, while the Realgar is brilliant red. This is clearly seen inside the Calcites and extending to the surface in sharp form. In good condition with some bruising that is not distracting, specimen like this one are a great value for building collections with attractive pieces that are fine yet affordable.
