Large and beautiful, fine example of this older and highly desirable style of Chinese calcite. Lustrous, pink "pokerchips" of manganoan calcite have grown parallel to each other on a large, translucent, yellowish calcite "butterfly twin. The second part of the twin is contacted but the shape is still there. Very impressive, fine calcite specimen.
