SKU: HONCAL Category:

Specimens of honey calcite from Madagascar. Calcite is one of the index minerals in the Mohs scale at number 3, as it is a fairly soft mineral, able to be scratched by your finger nail. As expected of this group of minerals, it reacts with hydrochloric acid or vinegar to release bubbles of CO2, this causes a reactions which results in bubbling and fizzing on the surface of the specimen. This can prove a useful identification method in the field when calcite is in a more massive form, or as an enjoyable teaching aid under laboratory conditions. These samples are a rich honey coloured variation of calcite and are an excellent piece for any mineral collection. Specimens are supplied in a white card tray with an information label.
