ID: CC16868
A stunning and historic specimen of Calcite with creamy Baryte rosettes and micro-crystals of Galena and Chalcopyrite from the mining district around Castleton in Derbyshire.  The four main Calcite crystals are formed from complex stepped composite crystals which narrow towards their terminations and grade from glassy translucent light grey to a smoky tan.  The specimen comes with a Dick Barstow white label (from his personal collection) and he records it as being an ex. Joseph Neeld Collection specimen, No. 1458.
