ID: CC11041
A fine cabinet specimen displaying multiple arrays of twinned arrowhead metallic light golden Marcasite developed in and over a pinkish beige, fine grained calcareous matrix of either chalk or marl from Vintírov in the Karlovy Vary Region of the Czech Republic. The twinned crystal arms measure to almost 7 cm and display a superb variety of twinning habits. These include nested unidirectional arrowheads, horizontally branching spears and forms resembling a flattened Christmas tree, graduating from broad horizontal branches at the base to a narrow and pointed apex. A remarkably aesthetic and fine example of Marcasite from the Czech Republic.
