Calcite with Hematite inclusions
Leiping Mine, Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
Cluster of mostly double terminated, water clear, lustrous calcite crystals with inclusions of sparkling reddish hematite in sharply defined zones forming striking phantoms. Contacted at the base and minor matrix attached to one crystal, but the main terminations are in excellent condition. Absolutely gorgeous miniature, displays well from all angles.
