Calcite is famous for producing almost countless habits, but this specimen even catches the breath of a seasoned collector!  Pseudo-hexagonal, deep smoky crystals terminated with sugary light grey caps form a tightly packed structure of vertical parallel columns with a striking resemblance to the Giant’s Causeway’s basalt columns!  A fabulous Calcite miniature from Uranium Mine No. 21 at Háje in the Příbram Mining District in the Czech Republic.
