Ferroan Calcite...

Post by crocoite »

...from the Bundoora Quarry in Melbourne. I think I've posted a pic or two from here before. This specimen is about 15mm wide and cropped to remove the hint of plastic under the specimen.

That is a really nice looking crystal Steve. Beautiful color and wonderful shape and real fine picture. I love the little spike ends coming out and great background.

Thanks Doug. I managed to get a bit of backlighting into this one.

Nice image Steve. I like how you used the side lighting to keep that 3D look and very little shadow.

Thanks Carl. It wasn't easy. Took a few shots to get it "just so".
