Calcite on Quartz

ID: CC2094

A large cabinet specimen of Calcite on Quartz from Maronne en Oisans above La Garde en Oisans, France. The specimen is aesthetically dominated by a central crystal of Calcite measuring to 6.8cm, surrounded by other intergrown Calcite crystals. The Calcites have overgrown a plate of well formed prismatic gemmy crystals of Quartz. The Calcite crystals have good luster, and are translucent with a hint of pink, contrasting nicely with the waterclear Quartz. A rare specimen of Calcite from this area - Calcites from Maronne are rarer than from the more well known and nearby location of La Gardette.
