Beautiful Calcite from the legendary Parta pocket in Malmberget, Norrbotten, Sweden
It measures 58x29x23 mm (32,6 gr.)
This is a seldom chance to get a Golden calcite from world famous "Parta 580"-pocket in Malmberget, Sweden, found in 1989.
At this time my father purchased some samples that he have kept ever since. This is one of the last ones I have for sale, and I rate this one the best of the ones I had/have for sale.
Some of the most beautifully formed calcite crystals occur at the Malmberget mine in Lappland, Sweden. This particular style came only from one pocket, found in 1989. The pocket is called "Parta 580". This lovely scalenohedron of lustrous and translucent, amber colored calcite is nearly pristine. It is a European classic.
This one is fantastic clear, without any inner cracks except in the bottom where you will see the crystal is lighter. It has a razor sharp top, and no nicks. The bottom is cut off, but otherwise it is damage free.
You will also see that the crystal is smaller in the bottom, but this is the way it has grown, and when you look closer you will see that this is all natural.
