A honey-coloured semi-translucent scalenohedral calcite crystal with matte faces, featuring a very shallow point that makes it almost tabular. This specimen comes from the Pine Point Mine, located on the southern shore of Great Slave Lake in Canada's Northwest Territories. The mine produced lead and zinc ores between 1964 and 1988 via open-pit methods. The town of Pine Point was built by the mining company Cominco, and when the mine closed, the town was abandoned and demolished. This specimen is a fine example from this historically significant location.
