Calcite

ID: CC26
A very aesthetic specimen featuring a Chrysanthemum-like flower of Calcite raised above a flat platform of matrix. The matrix is coated in small well-terminated translucent Calcite crystals, and on the underside of the base smaller crystals in radiating flower-like clusters. The main Calcite 'flower' measures just over 5cm across and the individual 'petals' are elongate translucent sharply terminated crystals to 2.5cm in length. Two smaller clusters are present either side of the main flower. A very attractive 3D specimen.
