ID: CC19814
A great small miniature of translucent milky-greyish-white Calcite crystals forming a flattened rhombohedral crystal and a saucer-like crystal, both sat on a bed of black lustrous Sphalerite crystals, from the Příbram mining district in the Czech Republic.  The Sphalerite crystals range between 1 and 4 mm across and viewed close to and in strong light, give flashes of rich claret-red.  The Sphalerite coats all but one face of a rib of greenish-grey fine-grained matrix.
