A BEAUTIFUL, water-clear and lustrous calcite scalenohedron with smaller aragonite and calcite crystals growing in and out of the crystal. The scalenohedron is pristine and the couple of broken smaller crystals certainly do not detract from the overall quality of this excellent Bor Quarry, Dalnegorsk, Russia piece. Not many were available in this quality. 6.6 x 1.0 x 0.7 cm
