A superb, very large, pristine crystal of calcite, centered perfectly on the pocket wall where it formed. This 8 cm crystal is fabulously lustrous, and has gentle striations on the pyramidal termination faces that adds a lot of character. It shimmers from within from internal reflections. The crystal sits on a bed of colorless, jewel-like little calcites.
