Rough Blue Calcite
Lovely quality pieces of rough blue Calcite. While these pieces are sold as 'rough', they have been acid washed, which produces a slightly smooth surface with better colour than true rough Calcite as it would be found in nature.
These pieces are sold in 100 gram packets - except for occasional larger pieces which are sold by weight.
The pieces are reasonably small, measuring around 20-50MM each.
Calcite is a reasonably soft mineral, and as such, it makes an ideal stepping stone into lapidary for beginners. It can be worked wet or dry and takes an excellent polish. They can easily be cut into cabochons or carved into decorative objects.
