An impressive example of well crystallised Calcite from North Vernon in Jennings County, Indiana.  Although this locality only produces six mineral species, it is well known for its excellent Calcite specimens.  The nail-head crystals display Mercedes-type terminations.  They are translucent to semi-transparent and although generally colourless, are strongly tinged in shades of delicate burnt apricot.  The crystals have a glassy to slightly waxy lustre and are mirror smooth.  A terrific small cabinet specimen for both its delightful variation in colour and crystal habit.  The specimen is accompanied with a Hawthorneden (Eldorado, Ontario) label.
