Calcite on Dolomite With Pyrite

ID: CC138

A very attractive specimen with a single doubley terminated scalenohedral Calcite crystal perched upon a cluster of Dolomite crystals on Pyrite. The Calcite is translucent honey colour with waxy lustre, and measures 4.6cm in length. Dolomite forms a ball-like cluster of pearly cream-coloured saddle shaped crystals individually measuring to 1cm. Several intergrown cubes of Pyrite create the base, and are sharply formed, very lustrous with faint striations. Extremely aesthetic!
