Specimen status: Sold

Spiky, exploding snow! Or maybe three dimensional frost? White coral? Regardless, we have here a fine, snow white, translucent and quite spiky (almost fractal) calcite. Excellent three dimensionality. Shows some green fluorescence under shortwave UV. A few spike tips are missing, but this is inconsequential in this case (and not unexpected as these specimens tend to rather fragile). Otherwise pretty much complete all around. Many display angles possible; probably best displayed with a stand.
