Comparable in characteristics to onyx and marble, Honeycomb Calcite can provide a colorful and dramatic accent stone for architectural and artistic applications. It is an unusual form of calcite as a result of its strength, stability, luminous quality and colors. The color ranges from a soft, pale sunshine lemon yellow to a deep rich honey golden amber depending on the thickness of the stone. When Honeycomb Calcite is cut, it exhibits its unique honeycomb-like structure. The honeycomb look results from the growth of long, fibrous or tubular calcite crystal cells outlined by white colored "membranes" surrounding each cell.
This stone is 13x9x8 and 64lbs. This stone has been cut to show its interior beauty, consisting of golden and orange colors, with cream colored stripes.
