The Dalen-Kjørholt limestone mine at Kjørholt in Telemark, Norway, is renowned for its many habits of well-crystallised Calcite.  This lovely miniature is a uniform, honey-amber with spiky scalenohedral crystals to 4 cm.  In SWUV the Calcite fluoresces dull yellow and in LWUV, a brilliant bright straw-lemon.  The specimen is labelled as “Repaired” but I cannot detect where the repair has been made. A choice Calcite from the Dalen-Kjørholt mine in Norway.
