Collectors of Cornish minerals will be more than familiar with the many forms of Calcite from the legendary Geevor and Levant mines close to Land’s End.  This superb pair of accompanying specimens shows a rare, yet more simple, Calcite habit in the form of squat colourless translucent hexagonal prisms with flat, milky-white pinacoidal terminations.  The rich coverage of Calcite crystals sit on an interesting matrix of reddish-black Goethite, pale olive-green Chlorite, and vein Quartz.  A scarce and attractive habit of Calcite from 19 Level Load Drive in Geevor mine, Pendeen, Cornwall.
