This rhombohedral crystal cleavage of Iceland spar is an unusually colorful honey-like golden yellow, and is a highly aesthetic specimen of optical quality calcite. The calcite is water-clear, making it easy to see it perform the "magic" trick of double refraction (everything seen through it appears double). This specimen is prismatic and water-clear, and has some lovely rainbow shimmers that can be seen through the faces of the crystal.
