Description

Second and last one of those very beautiful, eccentric, golden honey-colored calcite crystals - or better: crystal groups in this case. The specimen consists of several, grown together main crystals, with a second generation of spiky new crystals growing on them. Has something of an cactus.I don't know if I'll ever get another one of those beauties.
