Calcite

ID: CC974

A single crystal from Wheal Wrey, the mine near St. Ive in east Cornwall which is famous for producing excellent specimens of Calcite. The single crystal stands just over 6cm tall by up to 3.5cm across the termination. The crystal has a fine luster and is lightly tinted pink. The crystal rises from a base of intergrown smaller prismatic crystals. The Calcite crystal is relatively large for the location, and very well formed.
