India's Jalgaon District is famous as the source of some of the world's best zeolite minerals, but has also produced some world-class yellow calcite crystals, such as this fine example. This specimen features a pristine, lustrous, gemmy yellow ~5 cm calcite crystal showing some complex interpenetrant twinning perched on a contrasting matrix of druzy white quartz. Outstanding aesthetics were a hallmark of Keith Proctor's taste in minerals and this specimen exemplifies this.
