Calcite

ID: CC20192
Beautifully crystallised Calcite from Tsumeb forming a splendid tight cluster of glassy translucent complex crystals with a milky to slightly smoky colour.  The crystal faces are smooth and highly reflective, with an attractive greasy to waxy lustre.  Individual crystals measure to over 4 cm across and all adopt various habits of the nail-head form.  A central core of more opaque, white Calcite, with patchy inclusions of sulphides, gives a darker hue to some crystals towards their bases.  A lovely Tsumeb Calcite.
