Madawaska Mine, Faraday Township
Hastings Co., Ontario
5.19 x 2.79 x 1.73 inches (13.2 x 7.1 x 4.4 cm)
Known also as "optical" Calcite, this rather large example is impressive for its color and clarity. The pale yellow "bar of soap" shaped piece is essentially one large, single Calcite which perfectly showcases the crystal form of this relatively common mineral. The crystal exhibits sharp face, and the cleavage planes are visible on the inside of the clear specimen. While most collectors have many more valuable pieces, most have one of these, somewhere, but maybe not one over 5 inches (12.7 cm) on the longest edge!
