This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC15423
Calcite crystals in parallel, stacked flattened rhombohedral clusters form superb curved blades of up to 2.5 cm across.  The edges of the blades are built from a row of parallel-aligned, terminated micro-rhombohedral Calcite crystals.  The Calcite is colourless to milky-white, but the specimen is distinguished with a wonderful preferential blush of salmon pink across certain prism faces and either side of the terminations.  An aesthetic and totally charming Calcite miniature.
