ID: CC28637
This charming and cutely aesthetic miniature Calcite perched on top of Quartz crystals is from Juchem quarry, about 1 km SE of the town of Niederw√∂rresbach in the Rhineland-Palatinate State of Germany.  The Calcite crystals form a symmetric cluster with 1 to 1.5 cm tall scalenohedrons surrounding a central 2.5 crystal.  All Calcites are translucent light sherry-brown to tan buff, with trigonal pyramidal terminations.  This cluster sits pointing upwards on top of a hemispherical radial cluster of pale smoky quartz crystals, each of about 1 to 1.5 cm wide.  Although more an optical effect than changes in internal colour, the edges of the Quartz crystals tend to darken, along with their tips.  Under LWUV the Calcite fluoresces pale smoky lemon yellow.
