Here is a gemmy cleaved rhombohedron of Iceland spar (calcite).  The color is a rich pink with a slightly golden tint. It is large and transparent enough to demonstrate this unique characteristic of this mineral.  Just put a straight line under the calcite and rotate it to see the double image appear and disappear.
