  • Pibram
  • Bohemia

  • This is an interesting, "old time". It appears to be a flattened rhombohedron of white calcite that has either grown onto or has adhering to it a bizarre, scalenohedral growth of the same mineral, although more lustrous and more clear. Kind of like a giant thumbtack. Some tiny pyrite crystals sprinkled here and there. Old labels (see pic) accompany the specimen and identify it as from Pibram in 1940. Really interesting calcite specimen!

  • A superb cluster/plate of colourless calcite crystals. Very reminiscent of some habits of calcite from England. The crystals are scalenohedra, terminated by rhombohedra and modified by other more complex faces. The crystals are ice clear and have the internal reflections characteristic of such calcite. Displays extremely well!
