ID: CC19800
Stubby scalenohedral Calcite crystals form a small miniature cluster that is almost completely hidden by a continuous covering of micro-crystals of iridescent brassy Pyrite.  A terrific specimen from Uranium mine No. 21 at Příbram in the Czech Republic, the Calcite crystals average 2 cm tall and are greatly enhanced by the granular-textured coating of Pyrite.  Beautiful and totally eye-catching!
