A stunning small cab, this is a tabular stalactite of translucent Calcite that is covered with spiky crystals of Calcite from a later generation of growth. The second generation Calcites are superb. They are sharp, have very good luster, and the terminations are quite gemmy. The longest of these Calcites reaches about 1.9 cm, and the overall geometry of the piece rather resembles a crystalline hedgehog. The aesthetics are excellent, and the piece is SO 3-DIMENSIONAL THAT it is even better in person!
