Calcite - curved saddle-form crystals
Herja Mine, Chiuzbala , Baia Mare
Maramures, Romania
7.7 x 4.6 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $130
Early summer 2021

Sharp edged saddle shaped crystals of Calcite with curved or bent faces in a stacked cluster. The Calcites are a flattened rhomb habit with every face showing the curved plane but most strongly visible on the largest crystals. The Calcites are a very light grey color and in good condition, some minor edge roughness exists and most of the Calcite has a matte luster on the surface that looks textured but several parts also have a brighter smooth surface as well. An odd habit that is a lot like saddle-shaped curved Dolomite but this form is not at all common in Calcite.
