ID: CC6227

A pleasing specimen of Calcite with Chalcopyrite, Sphalerite and Pyrite on Quartz from the Gyöngyösoroszi mining area in the Mátra mountains, Hungary. Calcite is an intergrowth of two white crystals overgrown by colourless Calcite with spiky double terminations. Abundant bright crystals of metallic yellow Chalcopyrite with lustrous very dark brown crystals of Sphalerite and minor Pyrite are scattered and aggregated over a Quartz with white ‘Kaolinite’ on a matrix of massive Sphalerite and Pyrite. A pretty Calcite association specimen from this ancient European mining area.
