This is a lovely specimen of chocolate calcite from Mexico, featuring sharply terminated scalenohedral ("dogtooth") calcite crystals in a rich dark brown color.  The crystals are very sharply terminated and have a flashy, bright luster.  The matrix is completely covered with crystals that taper steeply to very sharp points.  All the crystals on this specimen are pristine, except for a few on the outside edges.
