Caption: Calcite crystals. These crystals form the scalenohedric variant of the mineral calcite (calcium carbonate). Scalenohedron crystals form the jagged pyramidal shapes seen. Calcium carbonate is a very common mineral that occurs naturally in many rocks, such as limestone and chalk. This sample is from France.
