ID: CC19568
Two different crystal habits of Calcite make a wonderful specimen from Ladywash mine close to Eyam in Derbyshire, England.  Excellent pale honey-tan scalenohedral Calcite crystals to 3 cm long emerge from a vuggy and undulating bed of 1 to 2 mm colourless Calcite crystals which form rhombdodecahedral crystals, many with modifications.  Beneath the specimen, interlinked greenish-grey Fluorite crystals to 1.5 cm on edge, heavily included with metallic sulphides, form its backbone. A spectacular and showy Calcite that would grace any Derbyshire collection.
