Blades of Calcite, Inner Mongolia, China

Calcite comes in many forms and variations: poker chips, pagodas, crystals, massive, and many other forms. Here's an interesting bladed calcite from Inner Mongolia, China. Curious is the almost perpendicular, yet intertwined blades. Brightest in midwave, but glows in SW and LW as well.
