Calcite

ID: CC1612

Large translucent inter-grown Calcite crystals (to 20mm) with visible internal zoning form a large domed aggregate of overlapping rhombohedra. Crystals around the lower edges of the specimen did not complete their growth, leaving partial faces and edges coated with microcrystals of Calcite and Duftite which is visible through the fully formed crystals. Interesting display specimen!
