Ex, MacKay School of Mines, Ex. Steve Pullman
Crystals of Calcite cover a botryoidal, orange material. This orange material is likely Albite. The orange color is only on the surface with the interior being white. On one side of the specimen, there is a cleavage of clear Calcite which has this orange material included within it. The specimen is in fairly good condition with much of the specimen being damage free. On the raised portion of the specimen, there is damage (the upper right of the first photo).
