A very good cluster of scalenohedral Calcite crystals on a thin plate of Fluorite collected in August 1937 from a stope above 50 fathom Level near Lee’s Shaft, Millclose mine in Derbyshire, England.  The translucent, light to dark tan Calcite crystals measure to over 5 cm long and are surrounded by numerous smaller Calcite crystals.  The underside of the base is covered with sub-mm cubes of pale lilac Fluorite and a little Pyrite.  A great Calcite from this once important Derbyshire mine.
