Mineral Sequence in the Cady Mountains
Aragonaite - (Orthorhombic) Very rarely occurs in single, untwinned crystals. The most common crystallized form is in pseudohexagonal trillings, which can be in the form of long, slender, prismatic crystals or short stubby ones. Many other forms exist in Aragonite, such as acicular, radiating, fibrous, columnar, stalactitic, botryoidal, pisolitic, oolitic, tuberose, granular, and ball-like protrusions of pseudohexagonal crystals.
