This wonderful group of dark chocolate brown nail-head Calcite crystals is from the Příbram Mining District in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. The crystals cover a core of massive crystalline colourless, white and brown Calcite and forms a range in crystal size from just a few millimetres across to one measuring 3 cm along an elongated face! Certain orientated prism faces have a dusting of micro-crystals of either Pyrite or Chalcopyrite. The nail-head crystals have a bright glassy lustre and are likely coloured by inclusions of finely disseminated Hematite.
