ID: CC18143
A Tsumeb Calcite with lots of Wow!  Flattened rhombohedral Calcite crystals in parallel, stacked clusters form superb curved blades, each between about 4 to 6 cm across, of a delicate rose-pink and with a fabulous bright lustre.  The edges of the blades are the stepped sawtooth sides of composite small rhombohedral Calcite crystals which manifest as gently curving blades at the larger scale.  A beautifully aesthetic and showy Calcite from Tsumeb.
