Calcites- with many de-acquisitions from my personal collection
Calcite is my specialty, and I have a collection of over a thousand specimens to prove it! I am now focused exclusively on Tsumeb, so I am shrinking my overall collection and will be putting them in this catagory as time goes by. I also agressively purchase good specimens when the price is right, for resale, so if you love calcites visit this catagory often!
