ID: CC2189

A superb specimen of Calcite and Quartz from the Shaft 366, Alberoda, Germany. The Calcite richly adorns the specimen forming intergrown ribbons of nail-head crystals, to an average of 3mm across the crystal terminations. The specimen also has many intergrown double terminated gemmy Quartz crystals measuring to 0.8cm. Both minerals have overgrown parallel Quartz replaced crystals of Calcite, which are also heavily included by deep maroon coloured Hematite. The matrix is a milky Calcite on what appears to be an igneous rock. An attractive specimen from the location.
