A honey-brown, translucent calcite scalenohedron is partially coated by opaque, white chalcedony, like an avalanche flowing down the side of a mountain. A cluster of colorless quartz points lie at the base of the calcite, 'threatened' by the avalanche. Sits well for display on its cleaved base. A small cleave near the peak on the backside of the mountain is obscured when displayed as shown.
