Calcite, Portland, Victoria

A nice little spiky calcite specimen from the Portland Harbour Trust Quarry, Cape Sir William Grant, Portland, Glenelg Shire, Victoria. There are two generations of calcite as can be seen on some of the terminations where the outer calcite “coat” is missing. The specimen measures 20mm across and is a light pink under longwave ultraviolet light.
