Calcite

ID: CC19331
Parc Mine at Llanrwst in the Gwydyr Forest area of north Wales has a propensity for unusually crystallised Calcite and this specimen is certainly amongst this group.  Distorted rhombohedral crystals form a bed of excellent nail-head crystals, translucent and of a milky-greyish-white.  However, just fractionally off-centre on many of the terminations, a steeply pyramidal, almost conical, crystal has developed many to about 5 mm tall.  Very strange but most fascinating.
