These orange calcite chunks have a waxy to vitreous lustre, they're unpolished and have a very distinctive, smooth texture. Sizes vary slightly from piece to piece so please choose from the drop down list whether you would prefer a medium or large chunk.
The colour of these orange calcite chunks would best be described as subtle orange but areas of white can also be seen. In its purest form calcite is white but impurities in the stone cause it to occur in many different colours. Being graded 3 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness means that it's a soft mineral so must be handled carefully and if dropped, it is likely to break. The word fracture in mineralogy describes the shape of the surface of a mineral after it's broken and calcite being brittle (like glass), has a conchoidal fracture. This means when it breaks the surface is smooth, often curved and may have a rippling effect.
