A cabinet-size triangular-shaped specimen of lustrous opaque milky-white Calcite crystals, double terminated and richly scattered over a bed of colourless to light-grey stubby Quartz crystals.  From Herodsfoot mine at Lanreath in Cornwall, the Calcite crystals have a waxy to silky lustre and measure to over 2 cm in length.  These crystals cover a matrix of massive Quartz containing minor metallic patches of Galena and Tetrahedrite. A splendid example of Calcite from the famous Herodsfoot mine.
