Size 54x22x24 mm (40 gr.)
Calcite from Kjørtholt, Telemark, Norway

This one is a beauty. It is a double terminated calcite.  This one is a phantom calcite, where the first generation is covered by small crystals of pyrite.

The crystal is perfect, translucent, double terminated with perfect top and bottom.

There are a couple of tiny white nicks on the top.

I am not quite sure when it was found. But me and my father visited the mines in December 1992, together with a guy that worked in the mines. At this time he also bought some specimens. I cannot guarantee it is from this year, it could also be found some years later.
