This is another superb calcite specimen, that features a large calcite crystal, 7 cm across, with two, white basal terminations that sandwich a prismatic termination that is glassy, gemmy, and colorless so that you can look deep into the crystal through it. It is usually hard to photo this effect but these prism windows are so clear here, you can see in one photo that you are looking through the 4-cm-deep crystal right to the matrix underneath it! Smaller, white calcite crystals, like flattened disc with no prism faces, wreathe the base of this specimen. Side and back views are shown. Aesthetic!
