CALCITE CRYSTAL

Taffs Well Quarry, Cardiff, South Wales
 

Some of the best calcite crystals from Britain come from the area north of Cardiff where they line cavities in dolomitised limestone.

     

This fragment of a large, doubly-terminated calcite crystal has ‘stepped’ rhomb faces which are characteristic of calcite crystals from this area. The back of the crystal shows cleaved calcite.

  
 It is from an old collection and was collected in the 1980s.
