Calcite

 
 

Calcite crystals occur in a variety of forms, including hexagonal , trigonal, often resulting as a rhombohedron. Some optical calcite specimens are naturally shaped (not cut), and exhibit double refraction (an object viewed through the crystal appears as a double image). Try this by setting the calcite crystal on top of a page of text. White calcite crystals often form attached to other crystals, such as amethyst, citrine, and fluorite. Various forms of calcite may be found throughout the U.S., Brazil, China, and Mexico.
