ID: CC10145
Clean, colourless, water-clear Calcite crystals cover a thin, gently concave plate of fawn limestone with a pinkish-orange and pale apple-green base. The Calcite crystals are between 0.5 and 1 cm diameter, although one large 2.5 x 2.0 x 1.5 cm crystal dominates. This single crystal is completely gemmy and flawless with complex crystal faces. Although not obvious, this is a twinned crystal, made known by a twinning plane marked by a subtle re-entrant angle. All the Calcite crystals have a bright glassy lustre making this a delightful large miniature from the area around Pau in Aquitaine, France.
