ID: CC3045

A fascinating specimen of Calcite on Quartz from the Pribram mining area of the Czech Republic. Well formed gemmy to translucent prismatic crystals of Quartz with spots of metallic yellow Chalcopyrite are covered by a first generation of creamy druse of rhombic Calcite crystals. Superimposed on the preceding Calcite are five curious spherical aggregates of translucent-gemmy white Calcite, measuring to 2cm diameter, with a fine crystal surface. An excellent specimen from the area.
