Calcite w. Marcasite
stock #AX-12-091
Brushy Creek Mine, Greely, Viburnum Trend District, Reynolds County
Missouri, United States
8.3 x 7 x 7.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
May 2015

A castle-like structure of sculptural Calcite crystals that have sharp phantom of Marcasite. Elegant form and in perfect condition, this is an old Brushy Creek specimen unlike anything seen in decades. Some areas of golden Marcasite are nestled in alcoves between crystals. The Calcite spires are undulating in cross section with a vitreous luster and good translucence. A striking and unusual Calcite.

Calcite

Egremont, West Cumberland Iron Field
Cumberland, Cumbria, England
5.3 x 4.8 x 3.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Post Tucson 2015

Classic old English Calcite from the Egremont mines, Ex Larry White collection. The habit and clarity are typical of this region and these Calcite can be very expensive when they turn up at shows. Fine condition and eye clean (no damage noted by naked eye)the crystals have a slightly milky look but are still fully transparent.

Calcite & Quartz (Cumberland habit)
stock #AX-20-155
Sa Ducessa Mine, Oridda, Carbonia-Iglesias Prov.
Sardinia, Italy
5 x 3.7 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $200
pre Tucson 2015 update

An odd yet attractive very old Sardinian Calcite specimen with a second generation of Quartz in "Cumberland habit". The Quartz also has numerous inclusions and some is in stacked groupings. There is considerable Hematite on and in many crystals here, adding nice color contrast. In good condition and attractive, most everything is doubly terminated.

Calcite included by Realgar
stock #8.1-123
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
3.1 x 2.9 x 2.5 CM (miniature)
price: $140
pre Tucson 2015 update

We have seen very few of these esthetic Calcites from the Shimen mine, and none for several years. This was obtained in China in 2002, it is a single gemmy Calcite included by and associated with blood red Realgar. The crystal displays well and the staining of the orange-red color adds a very attractive touch.

Calcite with Marcasite & Dolomite
stock #AX-17-1052
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
5.7 x 2 x 2.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $385
pre Tucson 2015 update

A exceptional and odd form with an elegant look. Sharp Dolomite crystals are sprinkled on a stalk of matrix decorated with golden Marcasites and tiny Calcites. The top of the curving finger of matrix has a light amber colored Calcite that is sharp, complete and transparent to translucent. All in all some great esthetics from the Benchmark quarry, more famed for its Herkimer style Quartz. A very fine NY Calcite!

Calcite w. Dolomite & Marcasite
stock #AX-17-881
Benchmark Quarry, St. Johnsville, Montgomery County
New York, United States
6.5 x 3.3 x 3.4 CM (cabinet)
price: $900
pre Tucson 2015 update

A very odd and esthetic twinned Calcite sits on a thin shaft of matrix that has some Marcasite and Dolomite adding nice accents. The yellow Calcite has a great contrast to the matrix, and is quite translucent. This is the best form of this type Calcite I have seen, it comes from from the amazing NY collection of William Hladysz. Certainly one of a kind.

Calcite and Realgar
stock #6.2-1010
Shimen (Jiepiayu) Mine, Shimen County, Changde Prefecture
Hunan Province, China
9.1 x 6.3 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $225


From the incredible finds of 2002, this piece has a big gemmy lustrous compound twin Calcite crystal that stands nicely on a partial Calcite that makes a perfect base. The front side is dusted with micro xls of opaque white Calcite and some brilliant red, gemmy crystals of Realgar that reach 2 CM. There is some chipping on this piece so it is very affordably priced as a result. Still it displays well and has good visual quality.

Calcite crystals on Celestite spray
stock #14.1-406
Clay Center, Ottawa County
Ohio, United States
5.4 x 2.6 x 1.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $350


A particularly esthetic specimen of curved-face rhombohedral Calcite crystals neatly perched on a spray of Celestite. From a great, classic US locality this has an impressive and fine form. The Calcites are undamaged, ex. Doug Ervin collection.
