An off-matrix, highly distorted flat hexagonal Calcite crystal from Winterstock at Göscheneralp in the Göschenen Valley of Uri, Switzerland.  The Winterstock is a 3,203 m high mountain in the Urner Alps, located west of Realp in the canton of Uri.  This highly unusual Calcite crystal measures 6.0 x 2.8 x 0.5 cm and its hexagonal habit is elongated with its two long edges measuring 4.3 and 4.6 cm respectively.  The crystal body is snow-white with a frosted texture and silky lustre, with a more colourless, 2 mm wide outer rim of glassy Calcite and brighter lustre.  A very different and rare habit of Calcite from Switzerland.
