A superb large cabinet specimen of beautifully crystallised Calcite from Trecastell mine in Henryd, Conwy, Wales.  Trecastell mine is thought to be a very ancient mine, although the first documented records only appeared in 1753.  The mine was worked until about 1955 and today there is almost no surface indication that it ever existed.  A spectacular large cabinet specimen of a massive Calcite matrix whose top surface is entirely covered with large, vertically aligned, flattened Calcite rhombohedral crystals.  The crystals range between about 4 and 6.5 cm wide; all displaying razor sharp edges and, depending on orientation, present either a flat chisel-blade or pointed spear-like termination.  All the Calcite is translucent milky white, yet typically adopts a slight pinkish hue and under LWUV fluoresces bright tangerine orange.  This is a terrific specimen of Calcite from Trecastell mine and will also make a great addition to any display of fluorescent minerals.
