Fluorescent calcite, with quartz crystals - Estrie, Quebec, Canada

Nice small cabinet-sized specimen, consisting of calcite crystals, over milky quartz crystals. As it's often the case with typical red fluorescing calcites, this specimen is at its best under midwave.

Size: 8,3 cm X 6,3 cm X 4,5 cm

Midwave UV fluorescence
