A great and well-priced specimen of stacked rhombohedral milky Calcite crystals forming a 4.5 cm long stalactite, an unusual habit of Calcite only found at Boltsburn mine.  Sir Arthur Russell is known to have acquired many different examples of such specimens and research is currently in progress as to why and how this unusual form of Calcite formed.  A British classic.
