Calcite is ubiquitous throughout the various mineralised deposits within the Dal'negorsk district, within Primorskiy Kray, in the Far-Eastern Region of Russia, and is known to produce many crystal habits.  This terrific ex-matrix small miniature of milky to colourless scalenohedral Calcite crystals forms a parallel array with crystals typically 4 cm tall.  The crystals grade from translucent cloudy bases to semi-transparent, whitish-colourless terminations ending with modified tips.  Prism faces display stepped, often triangular growth patterns and all have a bright glassy lustre.  A delightful miniature Calcite from Dal'negorsk, a true Russian classic.
