ID: CC19948
An aesthetic and mineralogically fascinating small miniature Calcite with Pyrite from the Příbram Mining District in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic.  Stubby, hexagonal Calcite crystals with nail-head terminations form a tight cluster.  First generation Calcites are capped with micro-crystallised dull brassy Pyrite and around these, a second generation of Calcite has developed.  These encase the original Calcite crystals but leave the Pyrite coated tips exposed.  Under LWUV the Calcite fluoresces fiery orange red of medium intensity.  A Příbram Calcite and Pyrite with lots of interesting features.
