A beautiful and great value specimen from Levant mine on the North Atlantic coast at Pendeen in Cornwall, England.  The Levant mine was famous for its location high on the cliffs and its extensive workings beneath the sea.  Complexly crystallised milky-white Calcite forms a glassy Calcite ribbed surface that is dusted with sub-mm, bright golden Pyrite crystals.  A choice specimen, so typical of Levant and very reasonably priced.
