This very unusual specimen is the original Satin Spar Calcite variety - before the Gypsum variety came along and the name became much more commonly associated with that instead. This beautiful small piece comes from Reedy Cliff in Cornwall, UK. You will receive the exact crystal in the photos.
Size: 25mm x 23mm
Calcite is found all over the world in a variety of forms and colours, often in combination with other minerals. The more common forms of Calcite are Orange, Blue, Green and Yellow, Iceland Spar is a clear double refractive variety that forms natural rhomboids. Mangano Calcite is a rare pink variety, with high quality specimens from Peru displaying pink and white banding. Black Calcite, also known as Shamanite, is another rare variety. Interestingly, Calcite and Aragonite are identical in chemical makeup, but crystallize differently to give us different crystals.
