I think this is what is termed a “real cutie!”.  From the classic European mining district around Příbram in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic, reddish bronze Pyrite crystals form a rich druse of sub-1 mm crystals over matrix of relatively large tan rhombohedral crystals of Siderite.  Richly distributed over the Pyrite are many translucent cream Calcite crystals to 0.9 cm wide of a highly flattened rhombohedral habit, so forming rounded lozenge-shaped prisms.  A lovely small miniature Calcite with Pyrite and Siderite from Příbram.
