The Himalaya Mine, famous for its Tourmalines, has also produced other fine mineral specimens. Calcite is uncommon there, and this distinctive cluster is composed of highly flattened rhombs with a lacy texture that is reflective of very delicate layering and etching. The arrangement of crystals is attractive, as is the moderate fluorescence. A fine piece for a California or Calcite collector!
