Nikolai Mine, Dalnegorsk, Russia
One of the top 4 most popular collectible minerals, Calcite grows in a myriad of habits and comes in almost every color, from every region on Earth! With such a wide array of specimens available, it's very hard not to love calcite! From Dog Tooth, to Poker Chip, to Scalenohedron, to associations with Quartz, Fluorite, Sulfides, etc. We see new fascinating calcites come to market every year! Watch Mexico and China for exciting new finds!
Russians own the most land, and thus, likely the greatest mineral wealth! Getting mineral specimens out of Russia continues to be a challenge though because of laws around them being national treasures. The Dalnegorsk sulfide deposits produce diverse specimens every year which seem to find their way to market through a few legal export means. Some tourmaline and other lapidary rough does make it to market. For the amount of mineralization they possess, one would hope we could see more specimens in the future!
