Calcite on Quartz

ID: CC2267

Pinky clusters of sugary textured Calcite on lustrous transparent prismatic Quartz crystals (to 16mm tall) from this famous Mine in  West Penwith. All minerals are in great shape including the tips of the Quartz crystals. An unusual habit of Calcite on good quality Quartz makes for a very presentable Cornish specimen.
