For sale is a fascinating calcite and epidote (I think) from Biggenden. First the color of the epidote is actually olive green, not brown as the pics show. This features a second generation of what I would call lattice calcite over a reasonable standard bladed calcite groups. When look at under a loop the lattice is quite unique, I have never actually seen anything similar, a bit like favorable growth on quartz, except it has a open lattice pattern!
