ID: CC18973
A striking and unusual Calcite crystal from Stank mine near to Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, England. This long, ex-matrix specimen, triangular in cross section, has a fine slightly raised pyramidal termination with striated faces.  The crystal is translucent milky-white with occasional colours zoning.  There is a little very minor nicking around some edges of the termination but only visible when magnified. One of the three prism faces is perfectly flat, as if the crystal has grown adjacent to an external flat surface.  A terrific Calcite from the Stank iron mine.
