Description

​The model used is a 175 mm Calcite from Jalgaon, India.


It is a new specimen in my collection, that I bought in 2021.

It is a fantastic clear Calcite, found in Jalgaon Quarries, Maharashtra, India. It is a big specimen, measuring 128x175x87 mm (1,3 kg).

It reminds a bit like the world-famous calcite from Kazakstan, with its inner clarity and light champagne color.

I am extremely happy to have this in my collection now, and is also pleased that you have the chance to buy the digital art version.
