Calcite specimens from the UK

Calcite specimens from various locales around the UK. Calcite is a popular mineral but many people tend to go for acid-treated foreign Calcites, which have bright colours and a waxy lustre.

Perhaps British Calcites are overlooked, some can be very nice specimens. Please note, crystalline Calcite like #1 can be very fragile.

 

Our current stock includes:

  • #1 - 77.5x28.5x40MM - from Charmouth. This piece was part of a Septarian nodule formed by an Ammonite fossil - you can see an imprint of the shell. Luckily this piece was rescued before any water rounding could occur, resulting in good crystal definition.
  • #2 - 62x50x36MM - from Cornwall. An interesting piece, white Calcite with areas of red staining, likely Iron.
  • #3 - 63x60x42MM - unknown locale in the UK. Milky white to a pale brown.
