Goethite with Calcite

$850.00   €736  £670.00 approx.  

This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC19178
Goethite can sometimes deliver a big punch and this specimen lives up to this reputation!  Almost the entire top surface is carpeted in velvety micro-rosettes of golden-chocolate brown acicular Goethite.  Under low magnification hundreds of such spherical clusters can be seen catching the light and look magnificent.  The Goethite sits on a layer of matt black micro-crystals of Calcite and mm sized buff Calcite rhombs overlying a naturally etched base of white Calcite.  A splendid Goethite from the Příbram mining district in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic.
