11.4 x 7.3 x 4.2 cm. Have you ever seen calcite crystals with this bizarre form before? This is an old specimen that came out of the noted Ed David collection, and you can see why he had it. The crystals are like some sort of gorgeous flowers or leaves, gently curved, with lamellar structure. An extremely unique calcite specimen from a little-known locality!
