This is a good hand specimen of conicalcite, among and beneath a druze of colorless quartz. The bright green of the conicalcite contrasts well against the white quartz and rusty colored limonite of the host rock. The inividual crystals of conicalcite are too small to be resolved by my loupe, although they occur in tiny balls and botryoidal crusts. All of the sparkle is due to quartz crystals, all of which appear to lie on their sides.
