ID: CC19064
A beautiful, clean, crisp and bright looking Calcite from the epithermal vein-type mineralisation around Banská Štiavnica (Schemnitz) in Slovakia. Two generations of Calcite crystals completely line a open, V-shaped cleft in a matrix of massive cryptocrystalline Calcite.  Large, milky translucent nail-head crystals to 1.5 cm long and up to 0.7 cm wide, punctuate the specimen. These are surrounded with much smaller but gemmy Calcite crystals of the same habit, with a brilliant glassy lustre. Choice.
