Scores of trigonal "dogtooth" Calcites are intergrown to form this display piece. These crystals reach over 2.1" (5.4 cm) in length, are in excellent condition, and have excellent trigonal form. Some have a gray color and a pearly or greasy luster, and contain visible marcasite phantoms, whereas the rest are simply coated with druses of marcasite, giving them a colorful metallic sparkle. They are intergrown at their bases to form the crust from which they extend.
