A large cabinet specimen of bladed Calcite crystals interlinked to form a Calcite “flower”, resembling a beautiful rose.  From a recent 2020 find in the Xianghualing Mine of China, this lovely specimen is easily one of the most unique Calcite specimens I saw last year.  The white Calcite blades are translucent and virtually pristine.  They are highly fluorescent which display a bright orange-red fluorescence under UV lighting 365nm.  Comes with a high quality copper wired display stand as pictured.
