ID: CC19789
A fabulous spiky Calcite from the Příbram Mining District in the Czech Republic; a small miniature with multiple towers of sharp-tipped scalenohedral crystals.  The crystals contain very fine-grained inclusions of metal sulphides which impart dappled dark grey to their generally milky-white translucency.  The Calcites are glassy and lustrous and have a sparse yet attractive sprinkling of bright metallic golden Pyrite.
