This remarkable Calcite from Dal’negorsk is a reminder that no matter how many specimens you have ever looked at, there is always another waiting to delight and surprise!  Although not easy to describe, this colourless, quite transparent, part scalenohedral Calcite crystal skewers two wide, highly distorted flattened Calcite crystals.  One of these encircles midway and the other sits on top of the scalenohedral, both projecting like platforms or balconies.  If only the top broad crystal were present it would be described as a Dutchman’s Cap (like the famous Strontian calcites), but this has a mid-way stage!  Although the two horizontal broad crystals have frosted and naturally etched terminations, their narrow prism faces are perfectly transparent, showing each crystal is completely transparent.  A wonderful and highly unusual Calcite from Dal’negorsk, Primorsky Krai, Russia.
