A lovely cluster of calcite crystals from this famous old locality. Back in the 30/40's, a Quartz mine was operated just outside of Lyndhurst, for quartz crystals. The quartz crystals were used for electronic purposes. On occasion, very nice calcite crystals, striped with red hematite and with tiny marcasite inclusions accompanied the quartz in the vugs. Here is a nice example!
