Lustrous Prismatic Aragonite Cluster with Hematite
Alchuri, Shigar District, Gilgit Baltistan Province, Pakistan
Calcium carbonate forms as both Aragonite and Calcite, and these two minerals only differ in crystallization. Calcite, the more common mineral, forms in trigonal crystals, whereas aragonite forms orthorhombic crystals. Most large aragonite crystals are twinned growths of three individual crystals that form pseudohexagonal trillings. Although aragonite crystallizes in the orthorhombic system, most prismatic crystals are hexagonally shaped due to twinning.
Same happening here in a cluster of well-crystallized aragonite prismatic crystals with an iron oxide coating. Primary crystal is double terminated so as well-crystallized secondary crystals, exhibiting good luster with excellent transparency. Indeed a pretty piece for collection!
