Calcite and Siderite on Quartz

ID: CC19839
Small stacks of nail-head Calcite crystals of 3 to 4 mm diameter cover a bed of glassy, tan Siderite crystals.  These coat two of the six prism faces of a single, opaque, milky Quartz crystal with a complete termination with a greyish-white translucent tip.  A great miniature from Ehrenfriedersdorf in Saxony, Germany.
