Mining around the village of Gyöngyösoroszi began in the Middle Ages, working a polymetallic ore body.  The old mine and dumps cover the densely wooded hillsides where over sixty mineral species are recorded.  This lovely large cabinet specimen of translucent, milky-white Calcite is composed of trigonal scalenohedral crystals to over 5.5 cm tall with a bright glassy lustre.  Under LWUV the entire specimen fluoresces pinkish-red grading to reddish orange terminations.  A fine specimen from the ancient mining district of Gyöngyösoroszi in the Mátra Mountains of Hungary.
