ID: CC19592
This rather beautiful and spectacular apricot-orange Calcite sprinkled with sparkling Pyrite micro-crystals is from the old mining area around Vrančice within the Příbram District of the Czech Republic.  The Calcite forms steep sided, spire-like scalenohedral crystals to 5.5 cm tall and although milky-white within, are coated with an aesthetic tangerine Calcite outer layer.  The crystals appear triangular in cross-section because three of the six alternating faces are narrow, concentrating the eye on the three dominant faces.  A great Calcite and Pyrite from Vrančice in the Příbram District.
