This is a choice Shullsburg Calcite with the classic stepped Scalenenohedral crystals that have enlarged clear prismatic terminations.

In excellent condition the only damage is the base and back lower edge area where this was removed. A choice older specimen, these are modern classics and this is like a textbook example of epitaxial alignment of prism faces.
