The mystery of the Spaulding Crystal October 12, 2006

A couple of years ago I was playing tennis and heard the ball make a strange noise.  It rattled, so I put it in my pocket.  When I got home I cut it open and found this crystal inside.  Does anyone know what sort of crystal this is?  It’s about 5mm long and it is two cubish crystals that have grown together.

And here’s another view of it with some sort of different camera settings.  I have boosted the contrast on this one.  The one at the top is unretouched.
