ID: CC19298
A really unusual Calcite specimen from Parc mine at Llanrwst in the Gwydyr Forest area, Conwy, Wales.  The Calcite forms creamy-tan to smoky-grey flattened rhombohedral crystals with pseudohexagonal terminations of between 1 to 1.6 cm across flats.  The terminations have elongated developed corners which form striking and highly unusual stellate crystals.  A very rare habit of Calcite displayed superbly in this fine miniature.
