ID: CC18033
The combination of translucent milky Calcite crystals distributed amongst, and pierced by, broad acicular blades dark silver metallic Stibnite.  The Calcite forms flattened rhombohedral crystals, many with a rounded, ‘flying-saucer’ habit which ‘hover’ between the Stibnite crystals, skewered by the Stibnite and often with the Stibnite tips protruding through.  A terrific and aesthetic specimen from Herja mine at Chiuzbaia, Baia Mare in Romania.  The specimen is displayed on a clear polished acrylic base.
