ID: CC19789
A fabulous spiky Calcite from the Příbram Mining District in the Czech Republic; a small miniature with multiple towers of sharply terminated scalenohedral crystals.  The crystals contain very fine-grained inclusions of metal sulphides which impart dappled dark grey speckles to their generally milky-white translucency.  The Calcites are glassy and lustrous and have a sparse yet attractive sprinkling of bright metallic golden Pyrite.  Under LWUV the Calcite at first appears to be non-fluorescent but give it a minute’s exposure and an ethereal reddish-pink glow becomes visible.  A charming Calcite with Pyrite from the famous Příbram mining district.
