OKD-516

Back

OKD-516    Calcite with Hematite     Faraday Mine, Bancroft, Ontario, Canada.  Ex Dr. Steve Chamberlain Collection.  Besides the couple Iíve had for sale, I have not seen calcites from this mine offered.  They are extremely interesting twins.  This one has a couple of dings so it is not perfect.  Globular hematite composes the small amount of matrix on which the calcite twin rests and some surface coatings, as well.  6 x 5.4 x 5 cm.  Old collection number but no documentation of ownership prior to its sale by Wardís of Rochester.  100$
