07084: Gypsum and Calcite
Fengjiashan Mine, Daye County, Huangshi, Hubei, China
Large cabinet - 23 x 19 x 10 cm (9.1 x 7.5 x 3.9 inches)
Weight - 3588 grams (7.90 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

The large and quite nice specimen features dozens of sharp and water clear gypsum crystals rising from a greenish-gray, crystalline calcite matrix. The gypsum crystals reach 3 cm in length. Despite the softness of gypsum and large size of this specimen it is quite remarkable that there is only a very tiny bit of gypsum damage.  Displays beautifully. A must for the collector of gypsum or Chinese minerals. Definitely better than the photos show.
