Calcite


Recommended Posts

Poke at one of those little rascals. Should be pretty easy to tell if the materials differ much. Looks like two different minerals to me. 

That calcite has an odd taper. Everyone seems to agree it is calcite so I am learning something here. I guess I have never seen calcite taper like that. I would think it was something else just from the photo. Maybe I have seen it that way and just did not notice or thought it was something else...

I did poke at it. Was reluctant to do any kind of damage, but it scratches easily, so I'm thinking it is all calcite down in there
