A rare location piece of finely crystallised Calcite from the 170 ft Level of Great Rake mine at Carsington, about 9 km southwest of Matlock. The locality on the new label is given as White Rake, and this mine is also known as Perseverance mine, both of these tying in with the locality details provided in mindat. One to two millimetre pale lemon buff Calcite crystals form a hillocky druse over a coarsely crystallised Calcite matrix. Occasional scalenohedral Calcite crystals to around 1 cm also nestle in a few vugs and crevice’s. Under LWUV the Calcite fluoresces reasonably bright creamy white.
