Calcite on Quartz


A large cluster of elongated colorless/white translucent scalenohedral Calcite crystals on a Chlorite dusted Quartz matrix. The contrast between the satin luster and clear/white color of the Calcite against the dark-green (practically black) color and matte luster of the Chlorite coated Quartz is about as distinct as it gets. There are a few missing terminations on the Calcite crystals, but they are unnoticeable due to the sheer number of existing complete crystals. A very unique and aesthetic piece, overall in very good condition.
