ID: CC10143
A superb twinned and gemmy Calcite from the area around Pau in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department of France.  Complex scalenohedral Calcite crystals, of similar habit and appearance to those found in west Cumbria (England), cover a small matrix of light pinkish-tan siltstone.  The crystals are developed to 2 cm tall and one is beautifully twinned more towards the “butterfly” habit than the more-common “heart” twin.  The large crystals are almost water-clear and sit on a bed of translucent milky Calcite.  An excellent example of a good Calcite twin and from a seldom seen location.
