ID: CC14411
A great specimen of Calcite from the Zinc Corporation mine at Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia, punctuated with numerous 1 to 4 mm clusters of Pyrite micro-crystals.  The Calcite is a clean milky-white and forms a radiating hedgehog array of scalenohedral crystals emanating from an underlying core of mixed granular Galena and Sphalerite.  The Pyrite tends to form spherical clusters that commonly occur on the tips of the lustrous Calcites.  A most attractive specimen and a very good example of Calcite from this world-class locality.
