Calcite is a very delicate stone and one of the most common minerals on earth. Its numerous inclusions and admixtures influence calcite’s colour design. Transparent white calcites are noted for their striking double refraction, which occurs thanks to the single crystals. It is a very fragile and fissile stone, which requires individual, manual processing and faceting. This piece is from China.

Use: Rough stones can be charming interior decorations as well as valuable pieces of a mineralogical collection.

About the product: The package contains rough rhombohedron crystals of white calcite in size 4 - 6 cm or 6 - 8 cm. This product is available only in 25 kg package for an advantageous price - a cardboard box in which minerals are carefully packed in layers of soft paper.
