A specimen destined for this Christmas update is this fantastic snowball-like hemisphere of pure white Calcite measuring 7 cm in diameter from Gyöngyösoroszi in the Mátra Mountains of Hungary.  The ball-like structure has formed around a matrix core of massive Calcite mixed with bronze-brown Sphalerite.  The entire surface of the ball is covered in micro-crystallised Calcite making a truly festive and impressive small cabinet specimen from Hungary.
