Calcite in Quartz geode
Keokuk, Lee Co., Iowa, USA

The calcite in this quartz geode is so perfectly arranged as to appear someone placed it there. Keokuk is famous for geodes and while most are simply quartz filled cavities a fair number also contain calcite crystals. Left to chance, however, is what things will look like when the geodes is split open. This one turned out perfect! The geode is 11 x 9.8 x 6 cm overall, and the calcite inside is 3.5+ cm across.
