An eye-catching large cabinet specimen featuring sharp, lustrous, bi-colored (yellow and red) Calcite crystals interlinked to form this beautiful cluster from the famous Daye Copper Mine. The red color cascading down the gem quality Calcite discs creating excellent and contrasting visual effect, outstanding! It is amazing such a perfect piece survived being found and cut out of the harsh and complex environment of the Daye Copper Mine.  Only a few of this species were discovered from a 2019 special pocket and this is a very representative piece in terms of size, color, gemminess and superb condition.  Comes with a high quality copper-wired display stand.
