Calcite on Fluorite

ID: CC19311
Many fine specimens have come out of Ladywash mine just north of the village of Eyam in Derbyshire, England and this fabulous cabinet specimen adds to the list.  A single and superb scalenohedral Calcite crystal, 7.6 cm long, sits at a 45 degree angle to a bed of identically coloured and sulphide-included Fluorite crystals to 1.9 cm on edge.  Both the Calcite and Fluorite is translucent and basically colourless, but tinged light to mid grey as a result of the high density of metallic sulphide inclusions.  A really terrific Ladywash Calcite and Fluorite.
