Pyrite (elongated habit)

ID: CC19699
A rare and tremendous specimen of Pyrite with highly distorted crystal growth whereby one of the three crystallographic axes is elongated, so forming a crystal of acicular morphology, with a square cross section.  The Pyrite forms as both single and multiple crystals of this habit, developed on and between drusy aggregates of graphite-grey Calcite.  The longest Pyrite crystal is about 9 mm by 0.5 mm square in section.  A very rare specimen of this unusual Pyrite habit from the Příbram mining district in the Czech Republic.
