Quartz After Calcite

ID: CC2246

A very attractive pseudomorph specimen where lustrous milky quartz has replaced scalenohedral Calcite with the largest crystal standing 3cm tall from the matrix. Lustrous hexagonal Quartz crystals adorn the base of the pseudo crystals, to 8mm. Smaller, 1 to 2 mm, crystals of quartz dust the pseudomorph crystals and the multiple reflective prism faces give a great 'sparkle' to the specimen. A lovely display specimen from this famous old lead mine, usually known for its Cerussite specimens.
