Here is an Arctic mineral for you! This piece from VERY far north in Canada shows a rounded, purple spinel crystal embedded but very well exposed in creamy-beige, coarse calcite cleavage. The spinel crystal is rounded but, as you can see, shows crystal faces all around. Some rounded diopside crystals present in the calcite, as well. Excellent piece that displays perfectly!
