Red Diamond Calcite
Diamond Calcites are some of my favourite specimens. The luster and rainbows given off by these pieces is truly wonderful. This specimen has many small twinned terminations. I love the effect of this growth pattern on the overall specimen. It gives off a spectacular luster with rainbows appearing everywhere. The underside has an interesting iridesence. Very minor damage on some of the calcite.
