Quartz and Calcite on Chalcedony – NBB 203

Interesting specimens of quartz and calcite on chalcedony

Measurements:  69 x 49 x 30 mm                  

Description:  A delicate and very interesting specimen consisting of 'bladed' clear quartz crystals, calcite crystals (some with a coating of iron oxide) and a brownish (unknown to us) botryoidal mineral that covers most of the matrix top.
