Mineral Specimen #4192 Dogtooth Calcite Crystal
Royal Mine, Matlock Bath, Derbyshire, England
4.7 x 3.7 x 2.2 cm
Ex. H. R. McBroom, from trade with Eric Otty, 1980
A single, off white colored, dogtooth Calcite crystal. The surfaces appear be slightly etched indicating the specimen may have been exposed to acidic ground waters. Although translucent in appearance, when back lit, the interior appears to be clear, but the etching on the surfaces occludes the interior.
The specimen is in very good condition with the expetion of a small brusie on one of the edges on the back of the specimen.
