La Cuerre mine (La Florida mines), Rionansa (Herrerías), Sierra de Arnero, Cantabria, Spain

In this sample we have a complex twinned escalenohedron group, "doubly terminated", with combination with the rhombohedron. Transparence is excellent, with defined faces and delicate edges.
These specimens appeared accompanied by pink dolomite, at level 6 of this mine. An excellent miniature from this classic Spanish locality. Calcite specimens from la Florida mines are known and valued worldwide.

Size: 5,4 x 4,0 x 3,8 cm.
