A small and choice Calcite “heart twin” from the iron mining district around the town of Egremont in west Cumbria.  The crystal is semi-transparent and although essentially colourless, does has a milky-white tinge, especially along the plane of symmetry between the two adjacent crystals.  Where the twins join, their alignment is perfect and so re-entrant angle is visible.  The Twin is attached to 5 to 10 mm long single Calcite crystals around its base.  Both these and the twin have a common edge with dark brown-tan dendritic inclusions.  A lovely small miniature twinned Calcite.
