Calcite on Quartz

ID: CC5090

The Coronation Lode at the Geevor Mine, Pendeen, Cornwall is well known for the varied crystal habits of Calcite that it gave up. The specimen we have to offer displays lots of creamy-pinkish platy Calcite crystals, richly investing the display face. Crystals of Calcite have formed on Goethite red coated Quartz crystals with grayish-green Chlorite. A characteristic Calcite from the Geevor Mine.
