A classic French specimen from Bellecroix, Fontainebleau of rhombic Calcite crystals in a cluster formation of offset parallel growth. Crystals of Calcite have formed in solution cavities in limestone and while the crystals are growing sand has washed into the cavities from the sandstone layer above., having become trapped within the growing crystals of Calcite. A particularly fine specimen from the location.
