Description
 
Optical Calcite is a clear carbonite polymorph. These samples are transparent and are famous for causing a double-image when anything is viewed through the calcite. This is due to an effect known as Birefringence where light traveling through a transparent material decomposes into two rays! Specimens are about 1" on their long sides.
