A fine old-time specimen of Calcite only occasionally seen from the Herodsfoot Mine, Cornwall. The specimen we have is a fine example of Calcite crystals from the lead mine. Crystals of lustrous white Calcite measuring to 2.8cm display an elongated three faced habit many of white are double terminated, on pyramidal colourless-white Quartz crystals over a tan coloured Siderite matrix with a scattering of brassy-yellow Pyrite.
