This is a remakable calcite specimen from Illinois! Bundles of double-terminated, elongated, spikey, and quasi-wheat-sheaf calcite crystals for what appears to be a complete floater specimen with no visible contact point and practically no damage. As an extra bonus there are regions of tiny, pink to plum-colored fluorite crystals on it. The calcite glows orange under longwave UV.
