We only ever saw a few stones from this interesting find a few years back. Orange Calcite is not uncommon, but having the ability to cut smaller gems with an intense color certainly is. We have had 50 or 100 carat gems with this deep orange hue, but those are not for all collections, so we were hoping to see a few more of these than we have. Its a great color and the cutting is lovely - very well done for the species. On first glance, you’d guess Spessartite!
