MINERALS SORTED BY NAME University of Kentucky

Iceland spar, a clear, pure, colorless variety of calcite, has been found at the Twin Chimneys Mine in Mercer County; other localities near Mundys Landing and the Chinn Mine might contain optical calcite as well. Aragonite is a polymorph of calcite and is distinguished from calcite by a higher specific gravity (2.95) and hardness (3.5

Optical Calcite Deposits of the Republic of Mexico

From abstract Many small deposits of optical calcite (Iceland spar) were discovered in the States of Chihuahua, Durango, Sonora, and Sinaloa from early in 1942 to late in 1944. Exploration that began in Sonora led to the discovery of commercial deposits in the eastern part of that State, and subsequently other deposits were found and mined in southwestern and northeastern Chihuahua and in
