ID: CC19577
An aesthetic combination of colourless semi-transparent nail-head Calcite crystals richly coating a bed of pinkish-orange, fine-granular Calcite over a matrix of massive Calcite.  This striking contrast of colours particularly highlights the colourless nail-head crystals which are typically 0.5 to 1 cm tall.  The specimen is from the Vrančice area, where mining dates to medieval times, within the Příbram mining district of Central Bohemian in the Czech Republic.  Under LWUV the nail-head crystals fluoresce bright orange-red and look magnificent; conversely, the pinkish-orange granular Calcite is non-fluorescent.  A great Calcite from Vrančice.
