A charming miniature of gemmy clear colourless scalenohedral Calcite crystals measuring to 3.4 cm overgrowing a matrix of massive clove brown and black Sphalerite, from Eyam in Derbyshire.  The longest crystal is double terminated and all Calcites are semi transparent to translucent with a colourless to pale grey hue.  This old time specimen is from the Joseph Neeld Collection.  There is no accompanying label but this information is recorded on the label of the last highly reputable previous owner, who’s name can be disclosed to the purchaser of this specimen.  A splendid example of Calcite with Sphalerite from the mines around the delightful village of Eyam.
