For sale is a calcite group from Broken Hill, NSW. This is a group of sharp translucent crystals with good luster. There is a small dusting of a dark mineral(probably pyrite) parallel to some crystal edges, giving a nice accent. The whole display face is pristine, being calcite there is one or two cleaves at the edge. It also appears to have a small skirt of quartz crystals, around some of the perimeter. Very sweet Broken Hill calcite, in my opinion! Ex Jack Leach (thou not having a number) ex Neal Smith collection.
