The title is my best guess. Note: these are uploaded at full resolution and will be immense if clicked on.

Went out today and found the source for a black material with white veining that tends towards lots of fractures. Got some big solid pieces, and this. Which I do not understand but find fascinating.

Editing to add I learned a new word: 'spherulitic calcite.'
