A cluster of glassy, transparent to opaque and colorless to very light brown calcite scalenohedra sits atop a thin matrix layer. The photos do not do justice to the luster. Individual calcite crystals reach 4.6 cm. Some minor chipping and (the usual) edge issues are noted. Displays perfectly without needing additional support.
