Ref: 23-779
The name 'Iceland Spar' relates to the clearest transparent 'crystals' of the common mineral 'Calcite'. The characteristic rhombohedral crystal shape is clearly shown in this 'cleaved' (split with a sharp blade) specimen. Exibiting the light transmission property of 'double-refraction' (bi-fringent), it will be seen that transmitted images (such as the line under this specimen) show a doubling which is particularly obvious if the crystal is rotated over the image.
Calcite usually forms as 'massive' blocks from which these rhombs can be cleaved or as 'nailhead' or 'dogtooth' crystals. This specimen is from Mexico. Average 3cms
