This is a fun self collected Calcite specimen from Afton Canyon, in the Cady Mountains.
Back when we lived nearby we would drive to the campground and hike 2 miles into the collecting area, where the basalt flows produced quartz, calcite and various zeolite=ish minerals. There is a thin little entrance to a rarely visited canyon that opens up to a collecting area filled with calcite crystals. That is where this is from. To think Id dream of taking a nap in this canyon once again...
