Large Banded Calcite Elephant

A carbonate mineral, calcite has been a popular carving material since ancient times due to its softness; the Egyptians dedicated many artifacts carved from calcite to Bastet, the cat goddess. It may be either transparent or opaque, and perhaps tinted with other colors if tainted with traces of other substances.
