PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Calcite, a calcium carbonate mineral, exhibits a distinctive orange hue in the newly discovered sunset orange variety from Namibia. Renowned for its widespread occurrence and diverse range of colours, calcite forms in trigonal crystalline structures, commonly found in sedimentary rocks like limestone and marble. This variety showcases an intense, rich orange coloration, often accompanied by minimal vein or intrusive activity. Some specimens may feature minor inclusions of biotite mica or black tourmaline schorl, adding to their geological interest. Calcite typically presents notable cleavage and a Mohs hardness of 3, making it relatively soft and easily scratched. The unique properties of sunset orange calcite make it an exciting addition to mineral collections, with limited availability due to its recent discovery. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
